Rising U.S. nitrogen exports to Europe create domestic scarcity for American farmers The sharp increase in U.S. nitrogen exports to address Europe’s fertilizer shortage could have a big impact on American farmers and end up creating a shortage at home, experts are warning. When the surging prices for natural gas in Europe pushed the prices of producing nitrogen for fertilizers there through the roof this summer, American exports jumped. With Russia still under financial sanctions, Europe has found itself without a major producer of natural gas and fertilizer. As a result of these tight fertilizer supplies, crop nutrient prices have climbed so much around the world that the United Nations has warned there could be a “future crisis” of availability. Some companies in Europe have already closed fertilizer plants as a result of the high prices. Total exports from the U.S. at the end of August reached 370,000 short tons of nutrient, which was more than twice the total recorded at the same time last year and the highest monthly total since The Fertilizer Institute started tracking this data in 2013. As a result, European buyers have been outbidding domestic buyers in the U.S. and several other exporting countries, such as Malaysia and Indonesia. The surge in exports doesn’t seem to be affecting supply so far, with the American nitrogen fertilizer supply reportedly at its second-highest level in the last decade in June. Figures for July and August aren’t yet available, but with the U.S. historically being a small exporter, it is reasonable to expect American farmers to struggle to obtain fertilizer should the trend continue.
Hour 2 ENCORE!
Tor and Kathryn McPartland refused to use toxic insecticides, but they could not stand the uninvited pesky visitors who let themselves in almost daily. They knew something needed to be done, and started searching for a product they felt safe using around their two daughters, dogs, cat and their beloved surrounding flora and fauna.
And, by the 1990’s they finally found the solution (though some might say that the solution found them). Made 100% from edible plant extracts and water, Orange Guard kills bugs on contact without harming the environment, your home, or yourself. The first natural and organic product of its’ kind, Orange Guard came into the market and outperformed leading chemical solutions as well as met rigorous standards to be EPA registered for use around human, pets and food, FDA GRAS Approved (safe to be used in and around food) and OMRI-listed.
Today, we’re still a family-owned business, sourcing ingredients and producing our products in the U.S.A.
Pesticides Linked to Cancer in Children, Adults in Western U.S. There is a strong connection between pesticide use and cancer rates in the Western United States, finds research recently published by scientists at the University of Idaho and Northern Arizona University. Two studies published in the peer-reviewed journal GeoHealth used geospatial data and publicly available pesticide databases to uncover the relationship between chemical-heavy agricultural practices and cancer in both adults and children. As the rate of chronic diseases like cancer continues to increase in the United States, and more and more studies find these diseases to be pesticide-induced, it is imperative for the public to put increased pressure on regulators and lawmakers to enact meaningful measures that eliminate pesticide use and the hazards these chemicals pose. Of the two studies conducted by the research team, the first study modeled the connection between pesticide use and cancer incidence for adults and children in 11 western states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming), while the second study focuses on childhood cancer rates in Idaho’s 44 counties. Both studies utilized databases established by public entities, including the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Pesticide National Synthesis Project database, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Pesticide Industry Sales and Usage Estimates, National Cancer Institute (NCI) State Cancer Profiles and the Cancer Data Registry of Idaho. Rather than focus solely on the impacts of pesticide use on farmers or agricultural workers, the studies consider the broader effects of agricultural pesticide use on the public at large. For the first study, researchers took the top 25 most used pesticides identified by EPA estimates and cross-referenced them with USGS data to determine the amount of each pesticide used by state and county. These data were then modeled against NCI county-level cancer incidence. At the state level, an association is found between the total amount of all pesticides evaluated and both overall and pediatric cancer incidence. Delving deeper into specific pesticide types, a strong connection is found between the amount of fumigants applied in each state and the rate of pediatric cancers.
