Of coarse, that's assuming there's not restrictions against increasing production to make up for a bad season. Which there probably are
It would still take at least one season so you'd still see a price spike.
Look at it this way, who do you think will get the first crack at the supply; farmers using it for feed for livestock used for food... or gas pumps?
