Hart interviewed about rural economics on Iowa Press

Professor Chad HartProfessor Chad Hart was interviewed for an edition of the PBS show Iowa Press that focuses on the current condition of Iowa's rural economy. While discussing the currently dry conditions in Iowa, Hart told PBS that "[...]Arguably, the markets have already reacted to it. We've seen strong runups in corn and soybean prices over the past week, showing the concern that we have in the drought conditions not only here in Iowa but across the nation, especially as we look towards the Eastern Corn Belt. The challenge here is really that the drought we're seeing right now, while it doesn't look good, it's not necessarily impacting our agricultural production yet."
