Ukraine’s other fight: Growing food for itself and the world

Workers plow wheat on the land belonging to Vasyl Pidhaniak, in Husakiv village, western Ukraine, Saturday, March 26, 2022. Planting season has arrived in Ukraine. Ukraine and Russia account for a third of global wheat and barley exports, leaving millions across North Africa, the Middle East and parts of Asia facing the potential loss of access to the affordable supplies they need for bread and noodles. The war has raised the specter of food shortages and political instability in countries reliant on Ukrainian wheat, including Indonesia, Egypt, Yemen and Lebanon. (AP Photo/Nariman El-Mofty)
