Eastern Nebraska farmers can apply for help
repairing flood-damaged land along the Missouri River.
The USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service has $50,000 available to help landowners use conservation practices to deal with the massive sand and debris deposits the flooding left behind.
State Conservationist Craig Derickson says roughly 104,415 acres in 14 counties were affected by the flooding in Nebraska.
The damage in Nebraska is part of the 450,000 acres of cropland the flooding damaged in five states: Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and South Dakota.
Landowners interested in the assistance must apply to the USDA by July 25.
