Hey farmer, farmer, put away that GMO now. Give me spots on my apples, but leave me the birds and the bees. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone. They sprayed paradise, and put in a cotton field.

Is gathering food even supposedly easy and common stuff like fruits, nuts, and vegetables much harder than people assume?

Went to a strawberry farm today and I was so surprised how tired I got after filling up a crate of over 50 mini boxes of strawberry. Legs are sore and arms feel like I lifted heavy weights!

So I'm wondering. Despite all the ho ha about living off the land by picking out stuff outside in the wild like fruits, vegetables, and nuts thats so common in apocalypse fiction and survivalist discussion boards, is gathering foods outside much much much harder than people assume/ i mean what I got was from a modern organized farms and the physical labor alone surprised me so I'm really wondering how much harder it would be in societies that did not know farming esp nomads and frequent travelers?

human nutrient deficiencies and Zone 6-7

I am trying to figure out which crops would be best to plant within USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 6 and 7. The criteria I am considering are;

1 Nutrient composition data for crops/plants viable in Zones 6-7, including concentrations of vitamins, minerals, protein, etc.

2 Typical crop yield data for those regions, in units like tons/hectare.

3 Health/nutrition survey data showing common nutrient deficiencies in the human populations of Zones 6-7.

I tried going to chat gpt to get some of that AI power to find the answer, but it doesn't have access to those data sets blah blah blah....

making money isn't my #1 priority here, suppling a nutritional need is. I'm not wanting to grow lettuce, even if it was a great money maker. I want to grow the things that fill common nutrient gaps in the American diet

soooo, does anyone have these answers or am I about to put in hours of learning to find it myself?

What in the world IS that, growing in that BIG field out there ?

Can anyone help??

Here's the situation - driving by on various rural roads, we often pass BIG fields of various crops. Corn, wheat, soybeans etc, who ikonws ??

How can I tell WHAT is growing there ? Corn is easy to pick out, but what about all the other ones ? There has to be a picture-based reference for this SOMEWHERE !

Something with aerial shots of these fields, with labels !

Ukraine wheat import into Tanzania

Hi,

We are a wheat flour producer in Tanzania and I am looking to buy wheat from Ukraine and import into Tanzania for food processing here.

I contacted a lot of sellers online and settled on a company based in Hungary. They have both Hungarian wheat and Ukranian wheat and I blindly ordered a sample of the Ukranian wheat via DHL. It costed me $100 so it was money I was willing to lost if the seller scammed me.

The wheat arrived and we tested it and it all looks good. The price quoted is $180 FOB or $220 CIF to Tanzania. Comparing these prices to what FOB prices of wheat are in Ukraine, which is about $230/$240, it seems too low and I am scared not to get scammed.

I am looking to again take it slow and order only 1 40ft container, so if they scam me, they are scamming me out of not a whole lot of money.

Is anyone here able to advice on whether the price I am getting quoted is too low and this is indeed a scam? Or is the price of wheat in Ukraine at the moment really around $180 FOB?

Thanks in advance!
