Thomson | Reuters – The powerful “bomb cyclone” that left wide swaths of nine major grain producing states under water in March flooded at least one million acres of cropland, an area nearly the size of Rhode Island. That’s according to satellite data analyzed by crop forecaster Gro Intelligence, exclusively for Reuters, which showed that Iowa – the top U.S. corn producing state – had the most flooding of the impacted states. The deadly floods – which occurred just weeks before planting season starts – will reduce corn, wheat and soy production this year in the U.S. and has already destroyed billions of dollars of old crops stored in silos.
