Hurricane Ida appears to have tracked to the east of most crop growing areas in the Mississippi Delta region, and yields on corn and beans from those areas are expected to be fairly good. Getting them to market, however, may be difficult. Several grain elevators in the region are reporting damage to their infrastructure, which could limit exports for the next several weeks. As yet, there still has not been an export of corn, wheat or soybeans since August 26, when one vessel each departed Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The hurricane made landfall on August 29.
