The Derecho has created a pretty challenging scenario in rural counties this year, on top of trade issues, EPA exemptions and other challenges. With the derecho also putting a hard hit on grain storage, some co-ops will also have to scramble to find ways to safely store the grain being harvested in a few weeks time.
Panelists: Mike Naig, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture and Land Stewardship; Sam Funk, DIrector of Agriculture Research and Analytics, Iowa Farm Bureau, Christa Wilson, Farm Credit Services of America. Moderated by: Chelsea Grieder, The Gazette.
