Hurricane Ida impacts agriculture

Hurricane Ida damaged a Cargill export terminal and knocked out the largest glyphosate-producing plant in the United States.

Many other companies, including grain terminals, are in a large area where there is no electricity.

Hurricane Ida ranks as one of the strongest to hit the United States, but although it hit New Orleans square on exactly 16 years after Hurricane Katrina, only two people have died and damage was less than Katrina because this time the dikes held.
