The government has an indemnity program for livestock killed by storms and flood, but nothing to compensate growers for grain lost to flooding, reports Successful Farming.

The issue took center stage Monday at an agriculture roundtable confronting the blizzard and flooding losses in Nebraska, a leading corn, cattle, and soybean state.
