Only two years after the devastating floods of 2008, Iowa farmers are again dealing with far too much rainfall. Southern sections of the state have been wet for months, hurting crop development. Now, heavy rains have flooded fields in other parts of the state, especially northeastern counties.
Fifty-seven inches of rain in some places have damaged crops and left fields more vulnerable to damage from disease and insects.
At least six feet of water flooded many fields along the Maquoketa River
