SD Corn president says infrastructure bill will help

The president of South Dakota Corn Growers’ says the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed by Congress will definitely help farmers.

Scott Stahl says reliable infrastructure helps not only grain movement but basis levels and the transport of inputs, “Investment in infrastructure is a positive thing especially if it’s used in strengthening some of these roads and bridges that need to be improved.”

He tells Brownfield South Dakota growers are just as dependent as many other states on railways and the lock and dam systems on the Missouri, Illinois and Mississippi Rivers.

“Those policies and that infrastructure investment does affect us even here in South Dakota. We know that the country’s infrastructure is aging and investments in that are going to benefit producers.”

President Biden is expected to sign the infrastructure bill Monday.
