    India's sugar output could drop 15% as drought hits - industry sources

    India's sugar production could fall as much as 15% in 2019/20 from the year before as severe drought hits a key growing region, industry sources told Reuters. The drop would ease pressure on Indian sugar mills to export surplus sugar, likely supporting global prices that fell more than 20% last year, partly due to subsidised shipments from the country. The world's No.2 producer of the sweetener could churn out 28 to 29 million tonnes in the 2019/20 crop year starting from October, down from 33 million tonnes this year, said Prakash Naiknavare, managing director of the National Federation of Cooperative Sugar Factories Ltd (NFCSF).

    UPDATE 1-As Biden tours Iowa, farmers want to know where he stands on ethanol

    Joe Biden may have an ethanol problem. The former U.S. vice president has pledged support for advanced biofuels as part of his bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Biden, a former U.S. senator from Delaware, was considered instrumental in orchestrating the blending cuts as a way to help struggling refineries on the East Coast deal with rising compliance costs under the U.S. Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), a 2005 law requiring oil companies to blend increasing volumes of ethanol and other biofuels into fuel, Reuters previously reported.

    Corn Weather Woes May Be Passed on to U.S. Livestock Farmers

    Chicago hog futures dipped to a three-month low on Tuesday while cattle prices eased after the U.S. Department of Agriculture said historically rainy weather would lead to a smaller corn crop than previously thought. Higher corn prices -- futures rose more than 3% on Tuesday -- may prompt farmers to send animals to slaughter rather than fattening them up, which will increase supplies in the short term, said Brian Hoops, senior analyst at Midwest Market Solutions in Springfield, Missouri. “Production growth for livestock and poultry is expected to be slower as producers respond to higher feed costs,” the USDA’s World Agricultural Outlook Board said in a report.

    Big brands breaking pledge to not destroy forests: report

    A rainforest area the size of Spain will be destroyed by firms growing consumer staples like palm oil in the decade to 2020, industry's self-imposed deadline to end deforestation, Greenpeace said Tuesday. Some of the world's largest consumer brands -- including Nestle and Unilever -- had pledged in 2010 to reach net zero deforestation within a decade through "responsible sourcing" of cattle, palm oil, soya and other commodities. "These companies are destroying our children's future by driving us towards climate and ecological collapse," said Anna Jones, global project lead for forests at Greenpeace UK.

The Willow Tea Rooms in the Scottish city introduced the new coffee drink as part of a project to support Kenyan female milk traders who are battling climate change in Wajir county located in the nation’s northeast. With more than 12.2 million heads of camel, East Africa is home to some of the world’s largest camel populations.

    Exclusive: Pile drive - China expected to divert outstanding U.S. soybean cargoes into reserves

    BEIJING/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - China will stockpile up to 7 million tonnes of soybeans bought from the United States during an earlier truce in the trade war between the nations, two traders familiar with the matter said, rather than crush them for immediate sale as a feed ingredient. The unusual move to store such large volumes of the U.S. oilseed comes as China faces the specter of a drawn out trade conflict with its second-largest supplier of the commodity after tensions between the two escalated abruptly last month. China typically buys about two thirds of globally traded soybeans to help feed its huge livestock herd, although it has been taking steps to reduce that such as turning to alternative meals and crimping protein levels in feed.

    Despite culls, import bans, swine fever to hit pork market for years

    Millions of pigs have been culled as African Swine Fever cuts through China and beyond, devastating global food chains, with pork prices expected to soar from the food markets of Hong Kong to American dinner tables. Outbreaks have been reported in Vietnam, Mongolia, Cambodia, Hong Kong and China -- the world's biggest pork producer and consumer. Experts warn it could take years to contain the hog-killing virus given the differing biosecurity standards on commercial pig farms and backyard smallholdings across Asia.

    Anger mounts at Vale in Brazil town at risk for new dam burst

    It was bad enough for Paulo de Morais when he was expelled in early February from the house where he lived for 22 years, in the shadow of a mining dam at risk of collapse. De Morais was evacuated with about 450 of his neighbors under orders from Brazil's mining agency, which feared a repeat of the catastrophe at Brumadinho 65 kilometers (40 miles) away. A dam collapse there in late January unleashed a wave of toxic mud that buried alive more than 240 Vale SA employees and neighbors.

"Every day that it's shut, there are millions lost for the company and for public coffers," Quiroga told reporters.

    The very richest Americans have even less to fear from the IRS

    Shrinking budgets and staff at the Internal Revenue Service means the US’s tax collector is auditing returns at the lowest rate in more than 15 years, according to new data released by the agency today. For America’s wealthiest families—families with adjusted gross income of more than $10 million—audit rates were at their lowest since records began in 2008, at 6.66%, less than half the rate of last year. Households with incomes between $5 million and $9.9 million had an audit rate of just 4.2%, down from 8% last year.

    In coal we trust: Australian voters back PM Morrison's faith in fossil fuel

    Australia's re-elected Prime Minister Scott Morrison once brandished a lump of coal in parliament, crying, "This is coal - don't be afraid!" His surprise win in what some dubbed the 'climate election' may have stunned the country, but voters should know what comes next in energy policy - big coal. Battered by extended droughts, damaging floods, and more bushfires, Australian voters had been expected to hand a mandate to the Labor party to pursue its ambitious targets for renewable energy and carbon emissions cuts. Instead, they rejected the opposition's plans for tax reform and climate action, re-electing a Liberal-led centre-right coalition headed by Morrison, a devout Pentecostal churchgoer who thanked fellow worshippers for his win at a Sydney church early on Sunday.
