Mississippi River levels ‘an areas of focus’ in 2024

Mississippi River levels ‘an areas of focus’ in 2024

An ag transportation expert says he’s concerned about the summertime shipment of ag goods along the Mississippi River despite a recent rebound in water levels.

Mike Steenhoek, executive director of the Soy Transportation Coalition, says, “The reality is it’s not going to require a prolonged period of dry conditions to all of a sudden see those water levels retreat a bit more.”

In February, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers announced that drought conditions along the river were officially over.
