Low Mississippi River limits barges just as farmers want to move their crops downriver

  • The Mississippi River's low water levels due to hot and dry weather have led to reduced barge loads, causing concerns for both barge companies and farmers.
  • Barge transportation costs have risen significantly as the river's depth is no longer suitable for typical barge sizes, leading companies to lighten loads and reduce the number of linked barges.
  • Farmers, already facing drought-related crop shrinkage, will now be burdened with higher transportation prices for their remaining crops, affecting their profits amid increased international competition.
