The author discusses the impact of turbulent conditions in the world financial markets on the agriculture industry in Great Britain as of November 2008. He cites that while grain prices have declined, inputs remain high. He notes that sulphur fines are £260/ton (t) versus £136/t in 2007. He states that the Canadian dollar, which had lost 25% of its value versus the U.S. dollar in a month, is cushioning declining prices.
