HOW NATURAL WEATHER CYCLES, SUNSPOT ACTIVITY AND PANDEMICS INFLUENCES GLOBAL CROP PRODUCTION, PRICES AND FOOD SECURITY
The single greatest fundamental change in our lifetimes in the Ag space has just begun and it is going to turn the Ag world upside down before it is over.
Over the next 40 years, the sun cycles and highly correlated natural weather cycles will be going through a rare 200-year Grande Solar Cycle Minimum phase. The expansion of weather volatility, Ag price volatility is going to be beyond anyone’s comprehension.
When we overlay the historic cycles of pandemics, like the one we are currently experiencing, onto this tectonic shift to increased weather volatility, the “just in time inventory” Ag supply chain model the world has embraced over the past 20 years will revert back to the tried and true “stockpiling strategy” seen throughout most of history.
The increased demand required to re-stock the world’s food reserve system will require higher Ag prices to encourage production at a time of challenging volatile weather patterns. Food security, accessibility, reliability and quality are about to take precedent over the price paid.
In this presentation, we go over these various cycles, why they happen, the historical data on production and price impacts and then how Ag operators can navigate this dramatic change in our weather patterns to not only survive but also to thrive.
Where we grow our food, how we grow our food, how farmers market their crops and the manner with which we deliver it is going to change in miraculous ways and forever change our lives.
This presentation can be crafted to include specific Ag markets of interest and will include a discussion on how to use capital flows (our proprietary Smart Money Indicator Algorithm) in futures markets to help producers and end-users time their hedging activities.
Both the long term and short-term Ag price considerations will be discussed in detail based upon these capital flows and natural weather cycle trends to provide a framework for proper preparation and execution for hedging strategies.
