Farmers fight flood, mud, Trump tariffs

FARMER Jim Moore stands within a field of newly planted corn and wonders whether the abundance of rain this year will force him to replant that corn.


RICHMOND  – Nobody says a farmer’s life is easy, and 2019 is no exception in Ray County.

Last year – drought. Long, dry, damaging. This year...

Some areas are still under water on the county’s south side from Missouri River flooding; rain hampered planting and then threatened what got in the ground; and President Donald Trump’s latest China tariffs have created bushels of concern about the market for soybeans.

So, what is going on in Ray County. See Friday's Richmond Daily News.
