[quote]He is the epitome of "frick you money". He can't be canceled. Clintoncided, yes. Canceled, no. [/quote] I don't think they can touch him. They all have kissed his arse for money. I bet he has dirt on every sleazy politician out there. Although, they all used to kiss Trump's arse for mone...

[quote]Let's make it simpler. You (Mr. Farmer/landowner) signed a fricking contract. Now, either honor the contract, or pay a penalty for taking it out. How's that for a reason to deny putting it in crop production? quote:[/quote] I can live with that. [quote]Vilsack's ridiculous argument abo...

[quote]But there's plenty of science that shows perennial, diverse vegetation is better for the environment than annual monocultures.[/quote] Here we go with the undefined margins of climate change and impacts. If we need the land in the future for cultivation, the impact is marginal on climat...

re: Who knew growing crops was bad for the environment? - loogaroo
Get out of here with the carbon sink bull shite. Planting crops is not going to warm the atmosphere and cause the oceans to rise. I’ve had probably as much environmental science as you and it’s a bunch of useless crap. I’m not against conserving forests and native grasslands, but some of these ...

re: Who knew growing crops was bad for the environment? - loogaroo
[quote]It's marginal land. It's not going to increase food production substantially. And it's going to require significantly more artificial inputs.[/quote] Not nearly all of it is marginal and you are still missing the point. No way in hell does growing crops affect climate change in a negati...

[quote]Finally someone with some damn sense in this thread. Thank you. CRP ground is generally not good ground to farm. That's why someone decided to put it in CRP in the first place. USDA isn't exactly in the business of taking good, fertile cropland out of production.[/quote] You totally mi...

[quote]In grain storage facilities[/quote] Dude...there is almost nothing left from last year's crops. And...I'm not sure if corn ever caught up from that wind storm in 2020. Plus... Obama sold all our strategic grain reserves. [link=(https://ppjg.me/2010/11/12/usda-no-strategic-grain-...

re: Who knew growing crops was bad for the environment? - loogaroo
[quote]Most crp/wrp lands were poor producing croplands anyway. A farmer isn't taking his best fertile crop producing soil out of production to return it to forest/woodland. They chose marginal lands to enroll due to low yields. [/quote] That's beside the point. We cannot use it if we need it ri...

[quote]If people want to try to put crp land in production next year they can have at it but will the banks lend the money to do so and will the supply of inputs be there [/quote] Another huge problem.

re: Who knew growing crops was bad for the environment? - loogaroo
It’s amazing how people cannot see the whole picture. They want to pick and choose little parts. This is a massive problem and it’s scary how one policy or one supply chain issue can disrupt the whole cycle. See how a fake policy could starve us all. ...
