Steve Wright harvests soybeans near Wyatt, Mo., in fields covered with floodwaters after the intentional breach of the Birds Point Levee. It took about two months for the waters to receded and although soybeans were planted one to two months later than usual, the harvest season is now going smoothly in the floodway area. Yields so far appear to be lower than last year.
