Saltwater intrusion affects rice, crawfish production

Description:
(Radio News 02/06/12) Durel Romaine farms rice and crawfish around Kaplan. Saltwater intrusion has been a problem for him and other farmers who rely on fresh water from the Mermentau Basin for their crops. Recent rainfall that drenched the southwestern part of the state was badly needed, but farmers say they still could use more. (Runtime: 1:55)
