Max Armstrong looks at an unexpected impact of the derecho – propane needs.

Max Armstrong shares what he saw during a recent trip to Iowa where the derecho tore down the corn earlier in August. One impact of that lost crop and an expanding drought is expanding the potential need for propane for the fall and winter. High moisture corn has to be dried before storage, and the Propane Education and Research Council offers an online calculator.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
