Farmers along the Missouri River planted all but a few thousand acres after last year's historic flood

Posted:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says farmers this spring were able to plant all but a few thousand acres of the land that was deluged by last year's summer flooding along the Missouri River.

When farmers can't plant their crops because of flooding or other weather conditions, they're able to collect "prevented planting" payments through their insurance.

U.S.D.A. numbers show that farmers received the payments for only about five-thousand acres of unplanted Missouri River cropland in four states including Nebraska and Iowa.
