Arkansas Farmers Lose $225 Million

Arkansas governor Mike Beebe declared seven more counties disaster areas last week, but as of November 6, 70 Arkansas counties are on the nation’s disaster area list.
This season has been extremely rainy and a number of floods have contributed to a $225 million crop loss. The number comes from figures released by the Division of Agriculture at the University of Arkansas.
Experts said that some farmers had a devastating season after 15 inches fell in October alone. Normally Arkansas only has four or five inches of rain on average.
The highest losses were $115.5 million in cotton crops, $50 million in rice and $49 million in soy beans.
