Bakers, farmers struggle to make any dough on poor wheat crop

December 11, 2017 from Reuters

:

High-protein winter hard wheat is scarce after two years of poor U.S. harvests. "Two years of heavy spring rains in Kansas, the largest producer of hard winter wheat, have sapped the protein levels of a crop that thrives in arid conditions." Bakers are using lower protein spring wheat with added gluten. Another factor is US consumption of wheat is dropping so farmers planted less wheat.

Ed. note: Products that would normally be yoshon many now be chodosh.
