WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The U.S. Agriculture Department is hosting
a webinar for farmers affected by the 2011 Missouri River flood.
It offers perspectives from producers who are repairing their
farmland. Representatives from USDA agencies and the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers who are working with farmers whose land was
damaged also are featured.
`The summer flooding left many landowners with several inches of
sediment and sand, as well as scour holes and ponds.
The webinar is scheduled from 1:30 to 4 p.m. on Dec. 14 at more
than 20 sites in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota.
Topics include planning for the 2012 season. It includes
information on how to remain in compliance with farm bill programs
while bringing flooded acres back into productivity.
