Flooding delays Michigan's planting season

Apr 24, 2013

Floods have ravaged Michigan this spring. The Red Cedar River has overflowed its banks on MSU campus, flooding the baseball, softball and soccer complex. In Lansing, flooding forced organizers of the marathon to change their planned route.

The Grand Rapids area has been especially hard hit. A photo has been making the rounds, taken from inside an office building in Grand Rapids, of flood waters rising up the surface of a window, with a fish in the picture.

Bob Boehm, manager of the Commodity and Marketing department of the Michigan Farm Bureau, explains what flooding means to agriculture in the state.
