The Effect of Wheat Rust – Ug99

It’s breakfast time and a few items are noticeably missing. There is no cereal. No pancakes, waffles, or biscuits. No bread, muffins, sweet rolls, french toast, donuts, or cookies. In fact, there are no wheat products of any kind. Why?

A wheat rust has wiped out 90% of the world’s wheat crop.

This is not science fiction. A wheat rust called Ug99 has the potential to affect 90% of the world’s wheat supply. Ug99 is actually a fungus, and it has jumped from Africa to the Middle East. It is poised to move into South America, Australia, India, and Pakistan. From India, it will likely move to China and Russia. If it makes it to the US, it would put a billion dollar’s worth of wheat at risk.

As the US economy continues its downward spiral, droughts, wildfires, and crop diseases threaten our crops, and backup food reserves are more important than ever before. However, government food reserves are almost non-existent. The days when people could count on their government to have grain reserves are almost gone.
