Problem is, STO, that if everyone panics, and rushes out to stock up on product, because of a rumour of a price increase that may or may not come to fruition, this then becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.
Even if the price was only set to increase by say 10%, the increased demand from the panic could well drive prices far beyond that.
In a situation like this, farmers then become their own worst enemy.
By the way, thanks for the heads-up!
more confirmation yesterday is a chinese govt charge or tax on manufactures as stated and the increase is just cover that no other immediate rises so a storm in a tea cup as they say still cheap compared to a few years back
