Missouri farmers facing loss of entire crops

Over at the Missouri Farmer’s Market blog there’s a good rundown on what farmers are facing with this wet spring, namely the loss of their entire crop. I know the Missouri River bottom down by Jeff City is half-covered in water. The soybeans are doing their best but hey, they’re not rice. Farmers are being advised to contact their crop insurance company. Like now.

And prepare for higher food and fuel prices. Corn’s up 80% over last year. Which brings us back to the unholy boondoggle that is ethanol.
