Farmers in the southeast and northwest portions of Iowa are dealing with drought, while those in the north and northeast have seen extensive flooding. Losses due to drought and flooding are insurable under multiple peril crop insurance, and the August issue of Ag Decision Maker seeks to answer frequently asked questions about crop insurance.

Meetings for crop and livestock producers in south-central Iowa currently experiencing moderate and severe drought are scheduled for early August. Prior to the meeting start, producers may have up to five corn stalk samples assessed for nitrates.

Charles Brown, of rural Ottumwa, joined Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Feb. 24 as a farm management specialist serving the 12-county southeast Iowa agricultural community.
