winter storm crop failure

Well here in central TX it was 6 degrees farenheit this morning noaa weather radio states the " normal " low temperature should be 41 . There are few crops left in the ground just some very scrubby cotton ( very late planting due to the wet weather then too dry to grow well )

Here in Britain theres been a lot of flooding. One news report featured a farmer a few miles north of Liverpool. She was describing how they had managed to plant their winter wheat, but the fields are now flooded and the whole crop is likely to be lost. So not only has she lost the crop and potential profit, the land is waterlogged and nothing else can be sown. Its the same in Lincolnshire and Warwickshire apparently. So likely to be shortages and price increases here next year !

I've been reading a lot of the comments in the financial forums and news channels about this stuff. The overwhelming sense I get is that they are completely out of touch. The trade war with China, and farmers just being whining farmers is the majority consensus. "How can farmers be hurting when wheat/beef/... is at an all time high?"
