Global food security at stake as Russian war shakes up agriculture markets


Global food security, just like energy security, has emerged as a major risk from Russia’s war in Ukraine.

Today we’re looking at the shakeup in agriculture markets with Peter Meyer, S&P Global’s head of grain, oilseed and feedstock analytics.

He explains the role of Russia and Ukraine in growing wheat, corn and other crops for the world, how major buyers like China are reacting, whether US farmers will be able to meet any of these new demands, surging fertilizer costs and how farmers are navigating these risks.
