EWG: In the Mississippi River region, retiring frequently flooded fields could save billions in crop insurance payouts

Farmers received almost $1.5 billion in federal crop insurance payments from 2001 to 2020 for flood-related crop losses in the Mississippi River Critical Conservation Area, a region increasingly afflicted with more frequent flooding linked to the climate crisis. That money could instead have retired over 330,000 acres of frequently flooding land, a new Environmental Working Group analysis finds.

By Shahla Farzan Photo: Shahla Farzan , Saint Louis Public Radio

When Richard Oswald was growing up in northwestern Missouri in the 1950s, his dad had a firm rule: Don’t plant corn until mid-May, when the first oak leaves of spring are the size of squirrels’ ears.

By Allison Kite

Average temperatures over the last half of 2021 were higher than they’ve ever been in either state — and across the country.
