KBIA's ongoing coverage of the midwest's worst drought in half a century.

The drought and its impact

Watch the show and join the conversation on theIntersection website.

As drought conditions ravage much of the Midwest, we hear how farmers are being affected and discuss how they’re responding. Discussion includes perspective on the weather situation, as well as explanation of how well farmers might be covered by insurance.
