41 THE ECONOMICS OF FOOD prices, but generally to a lesser degree. For example, energy prices impact the cost of producing chemicals to kill weeds and insects and of applying those chemicals on farm fields. Even the costs of seed and repairing machinery are affected by energy prices. Production costs for soybeans and wheat are similar to those for corn in some respects and very different in others. Per-acre costs for both soybeans and wheat are much lower than the per-acre cost of producing corn.

The increases in consumer food prices between 2005 and mid 2008 were in part due to rising farm-level prices for wheat, cattle, tomatoes, and other basic farm products. However, rising oil prices also increased the costs of transforming those raw farm products into bread, beef, and salsa and of putting consumer-ready food products on grocery shelves. 39 THE ECONOMICS OF FOOD The previous chapter detailed the rapid growth in biofuel production between 2005 and the middle of 2008, but did not try to explain why biofuel production rose so quickly.

The resulting slowdown or outright declines in biofuel production resulted in less demand for raw farm products and made a major contribution to the reduction in food product prices. Why the Story Is a Little More Complicated The connections among oil prices, food production costs, biofuel production, and food prices are all very real, but they are also very complicated. Farm Production Costs and Food Prices Higher energy prices have direct impacts on farm production costs. Farm tractors and harvesting equipment usually run on diesel fuel.
