Fall harvest is moving quickly in the Northern Plains, but in the Midwest, Iowa farmers are still dealing with the impacts of Derecho. “The moisture levels are very low. Up until the last few days, we’ve had dry weather. We haven’t had mold or anything, but it’s difficult when there’s corn down,” said Jack Tank, owner, Ag Risk Insurance Agency. “The Derecho was the largest single event in Iowa history of property losses, not just crops. We’ll be dealing with this for many years. The crop world will have it done by the end of the year, but there is still property damage all over the state.” Tank attended the Crop Insurance Professionals Association Fall Meeting earlier this week.
