For Louisiana’s soybean farmers, late August and early September is typically a time when the harvest is in full swing. And while nearly a quarter of the crop has been harvested, the results have been disappointing. The summer was initially marked by drought in many areas of Louisiana, but then weeks of intense rainfall has ruined what would otherwise have been a great soybean crop. In these two podcasts, LSU AgCenter agents and representatives of Louisiana Farm Bureau discuss ways they are working to get farmers critical disaster aid.
