What Happens to Cropland in a Flood?
Dr. Ken Olson has studied flood damages to cropland extensively since the flood of 2011. Dr. Olson's work is summarized in a news release from the University of Illinois College of ACES. Be sure to click on the links for all the information. The best part about his work is that the Mississippi River Commission and the Army Corps of Engineers are expected to sign an agreement to redo soil surveys as part of flood recovery. It will be interesting to see how the updates are distributed.
