Several years of weather impacts including Europe in 2006, North America in 2006 to 2007, and a continuing severe drought in Australia 2006–2008 drew global stocks down to critical lows between 2005 and 2008 (McCalla 2009). In 2008, the late spring and early summer floods in Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, and elsewhere had a direct impact on the prices of food ­commodity crops (Carey 2008). In Australia and Canada, for instance, adverse weather led to a combined fall of over 20% in production per hectare of wheat and other grains between 2005 and 2007.
