"Why should we not import whest when its cheap? It only takes 6
months to change policy and grow it again when needed."
(i) Because wheat is our staple, it is the bedrock of agriculture in
this country and when you undermine agriculture you undermine human
(2) Because the wheat we import comes from unsustainable production
in North America, while we have a surplus of nutrients in this
country. We have been mining the prairies of the United States for
the last 200 years, destroying its topsoil, and now we are starting
on Brazil. When you import food you import biomass and nutrients. If
you import a lot more than you export, that leads to an unhealthy
concentration of nutrients and biomass in the importing country,
and the excessive extraction of biomass and nutrients from
environments in the exporting countries.
