My take on this is that when some crops reached the point of no return.... BigAg stopped spraying.... I mean.... what's the point of tossing good $$$ after bad during a drought with no end in sight thanks to La Niņa last year and a lingering El Niņo this year described here by our very own NOAA, http://search.yahoo.com/r/_ylt=A0oG7j3JelxQBTEAfqJXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTE1a3Y5dHR iBHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMgRjb2xvA2FjMgR2dGlkA1NNRTEwNl8xO TE-/SIG=13brnnn9h/EXP=1348266825/**http%3a//www.drought.gov/imageserver/NIDIS/homepage/Summer_2012_Drought_Update_Aug_14.pdf and then with the continued lack of rain.... what pesticides and synthetic fertilizers BigAg had applied weren't as easily transported to nonpoint sources such as.... the Gulf so I totally agree with wildwatcher that what we're experiencing is nothing but an "elusive lull" because the rains will come. The untruth.... as I see it... is what's mysteriously absent from the article. There's zip nadda no mention of BigAg's "climate change ready" pesticide dependent seeds failing to save humanity from starvation... yet again.
