Crop Damage Assessments

A northwest Missouri Regional agronomist says there's bad news and better news from the hail and wind storm that obliterated crops throughout northwest Missouri.

Extension agronomist Wayne Flanary says in his 30 years he's never seen hail damage like what is north and northeast of Maryville. He says some corn can still be salvaged because the storm hit late in the growing season.

Flannery suggests some crops can still be used for livestock feed. He says the destruction through Nodaway county is widespread, everything from minimal damage to wide pockets of dying corn and beans.
