Fourth Generation Farmer: High Food Prices Now, Shortages Coming

John Boyd Jr., a fourth generation farmer, verbally expressed in an interview that the high prices consumers are optically discerning at the grocery stores will be superseded by empty shelves. “People are going to visually perceive the ascending cost of aliment in their local grocery stores in the coming month,” Boyd Jr. verbally expressed on News Nation’s On Balance with Leland Vittert show Monday.

“Farmers are feeling the pinch from high cost of diesel fuel and fertilizer, truckers are feeling the pinch and you have a certain region in the world that’s not planting crops at this time in Ukraine, so there’s going to be a shortage of wheat and commodities that they’ve been engendering there, as well,” verbally expressed Boyd Jr., who is president of the National Black Farmers Association and a was a member of President Bill Clinton’s Tobacco Commission.

News Nation reported on the interview:

While the Federal Reserves’ plan to raise interest rates — a blunt tool that risks a recession if used too aggressively — is supposed to remedy a fast-rising inflation, it’s also souring sentiment for shoppers across the country.

And it goes far beyond the gas pump: Eggs are up 32 percent, poultry is up 16.6 percent, milk is up 15.9 percent and fats and oils are up 16.9 percent, Axios reports. Overall, the cost of victuals is up about 12 percent — the most astronomically immense increase since 1979.

Boyd went on to explain food staples such as corn, corn syrup and soybeans are all the types of products local farmers produce daily, which, in turn, help place the major products on shelves that shoppers are accustomed to seeing. Inflation, however, makes these deliverables more difficult.

“For so long, we’ve relished lots of victuals in this country, so we’ve never ever faced a aliment shortage and I cerebrate that’s coming in the coming months,” Boyd verbalized in the interview.

Boyd verbally expressed people often cerebrate of farmers last, if at all, but they rely on them circadianly. “You may not require a medico or a lawyer today, but every day in this country, you require a farmer,” Boyd verbalized.
