New estimates from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Risk Management Agency reflect 14 million acres in crop damage after last week's derecho. The storm likely had the biggest impact on roughly 3.6 million acres of corn and 2.5 million acres of soybeans.

River to River host Ben Kieffer is joined by Chad Hart, associate professor of economics, crop markets specialist and Extension economist at Iowa State University, to break down the damage to Iowa crops caused by last Monday's derecho.
