Commercial growers report a record high Illinois1 pumpkin harvest appears to be on the way this fall. This follows last year's pathetic crop which was marred by fungal blight with many of these fall squash to approach maturity rotting on the vine. Last year's pumpkin crop in the United Kingdom faced further challenges in the form of extortion.
As is traditional with niche crops in the fiat system the commercial pumpkin crop in its near entirety is grown under contract for a division of Nestle S.A. allowing growers to escape the uncertainty of market pricing and instead bet their entire farm on the season's yield. Soy for your loss.
Contracting out the entire commercial pumpkin crop to one region greatly simplifies logistics for Nestle. This is a serious concern given the fragility of commercial pumpkins prior to processing. ↩
