Steve Lindstrom, who farms near the Cannon River in Welch, lost a 94 acre field of corn and soybeans to the heavy rains that hit the state in mid-June. KSTP-TV news showed video of the field looking like a lake, complete with fish swishing and jumping around.
He’s not alone. Many farmers across the state experienced washouts, and others had such persistent rains they never got into the field to plant.
