As Climate Change Bites In Midwest, Farmers Are Desperate To Ring Alarm

"‘The changes have become more radical’: farmers are spending more time and money trying to grow crops in new climates"

"LANGDON, Missouri -- Richard Oswald did not need the latest US government report on the creeping toll of climate change to tell him that farming in the midwest is facing a grim future, and very likely changing forever.

For Oswald, the moment of realisation came in 2011.

The 68-year-old lives in the house he was born in and farms 2,500 acres with his son, some of it settled by his great-great-grandfather. The land sits where the Missouri river valley is about four miles wide."
