Farmers along the Missouri River salvage what crops they have left; high school football playoffs are in full swing; and Halloween costume-clad Nebraskans enjoy the holiday spirit in our World-Herald Week in Pictures: Oct. 24th-30th, 2011.
Corey McIntosh harvest what’s left of his uncle’s corn field on the Missouri River bottom west of Loveland, Iowa, Oct. 25 2011. His uncle, Lyle McIntosh, said the field was 80 acres big before the Missouri River flood cover the field for 2.5 months. Afterwards there was only 3.5 ares of standing corn left. The field produced 87 bushels/acres instead of a decent year’s average of 200 bushels/acres.
