Article on November 20, 2012 webinar
From the North Central Risk Management Center   

Droughts and natural disasters have caused widespread effects across the farm economy this past year by increasing price volatility and production risk, as well as increasing financial uncertainty. These risks directly affect farms and ranches impacted by the natural disaster but also producers far removed are affected by reduced input supplies and price increases.
