Taking a look back at 2011
When many farmers look back on crop year 2011, it will be with relief tempered by gratitude.
This year was a difficult one for producers statewide. The spring flooding that caused more than 50,000 acres of farmland to be lost was juxtaposed by a drought that cost farmers more than $440 million in crop losses, according to the LSU AgCenter. It was a year many farmers hope they don’t have to repeat any time soon.
