USA Farm Tour-Corn Harvest after Derecho


On August 10, 2020, a derecho (land-based hurricane) went through large parts of Iowa, damaging crops and buildings. This is what corn harvest looks like when a farmer has to pick up corn that was blown down by the derecho in order to combine it. Tim Keegan, a member of the Global Farmer Network shares this video of difficult harvest.
