Update on Mississippi River dredging

The new year is bringing better access to global markets for U.S. corn and soybean growers. We have an update on a major dredging project underway on the Mississippi River.

For more than a year, crews have been working on a 256 mile stretch of the Mississippi River to deepen the water by five feet. The stretch starts in Baton Rough and stretches all the way to the Gulf of Mexico, where American ag products pass as they serve the world.
