HISTORIC FLOODS WILL DELAY PLANTING FOR MANY MISSOURI FARMERS

Flooding along the Missouri River basin may put the 2019 crop year on-hold for farmers along the river.

Rosier’s family farm is primarily on hills along the river bottom, but some acreage along the edge of the bottom ground was at-risk for flooding.
