Flood Related Lime Shortage?

Our thoughts are with those affected by the Missouri River flooding. Not just with the farmers that will be unable to harvest a crop this year, but also with the residents of the area. Most buildings in the flood area will have to be demolished after sitting in a flood waters for 3+ months.

The Missouri River Flood of 2011 will not have a significant impact on dealers & farmers along its boundaries, but those farther away as well. Impacts, real or potential could include:

  •                 Disruption of logistics-barge, rail & truck traffic
  •                 Infrastructure problems/closures-roads, bridges, rail lines
  •                 Manufacturing-production facilities, storage terminals not operational
  •                 Delays/changes in scheduling & shipments

Time will have the most severe impact on everything, in particular since the forecasts for the river suggest that current levels may be maintained well into August, & perhaps longer.  Many of the flood levees were not designed for 6-8 weeks of saturation, & may very well be unable to endure for that length of time.  

 

Fertilizer production & shipments are being affected.
