Rhonda Perry and Roger Allison raise cattle, soybeans and grains on their farm in Howard County, Missouri.But the worst drought in 40 years is turning their crops to dust . Roger tells Anna Hill that they won't have any grain or soya to sell this year if their cattle are to survive.And insurance is unlikely to protect them entirely from devastation.
But if farmers like them can't produce grain to sell to US producers , fellow farmers and markets overseas , what does that mean for food stocks and prices in shops around the world?

Presented by Anna Hill and produced by Martin Poyntz-Roberts.
