Missouri’s ag director is keeping an eye on changing weather conditions in the state. Speaking at the Farm Bureau building at the Missouri State Fair on Monday, Chris Chinn said she’s aware of the abnormally dry conditions moving into Nodaway and Worth Counties in northwest Missouri.
“And we’re hoping those counties that are suffering with
those very dry conditions get the rain that they need. But, if we need to, we’ll
start working on a disaster declaration, if necessary, for those two counties
Chinn says assessments continue for the USDA disaster declaration request because of flood damage.
