Senator Tom Harkin is joining the call for federal crop disaster relief for western Iowa in the wake of Missouri River flooding.
Harkin has made the request in a letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.
Governor Terry Branstad also asked Vilsack for the disaster designation last week.
A Secretarial Disaster Designation would help producers recover from loss of crops and damage to farmland, livestock facilities and buildings.
