Iowa Ag Department Official Says Propane Shortage Is Widespread

A near record and high moisture corn crop is causing a shortage of propane for drying.   Harold Hommes, Energy Expert with the Iowa Department of Ag says this is a corn belt wide problem as 85-percent of grain drying is fueled with propane.  This has triggered action from farm state governors.

He says this is not a new problem and calls to attention the need for expanded propane storage.

He says farmers have been spoiled the last couple of years with the crop drying down in the field.
