U.S. egg prices, already at a record after an outbreak of avian influenza earlier this year, will rise even higher in the fall with the onset of the so-called holiday baking season, according to one supplier. While there have been no new outbreaks of the disease since June 17, the industry is concerned with the onset of cold weather in the fall. Photographer: Daniel Acker / Bloomberg via Getty Images.

Elevated evening temperatures, strong heatwaves and a lack of precipitation has blocked their growth, resulting in what some farmers call a 'white year.' The annual cabbage harvest occurs from August until December, and with estimated September precipitation levels, expect output will be 25 to 50% of normal amounts. The Alsace region accounts for 70% of sauerkraut consumed in France, accounting for approximately 60 farms and 700 hectares of land. Photo credit: AFP PHOTO / FREDERICK FLORIN / Getty Images.

Agriculture is one of the few bright spots in the Russian economy, growing in the first quarter of 2015, despite the economy as a whole sinking into recession on the back of Western sanctions and low oil prices.
