Mississippi River Basin Ag & Water Desk

A Missouri School of Journalism Initiative

We are a sustainable reporting network aimed at telling water and agriculture stories across the Mississippi River Basin.

Agriculture, water, climate change and related environmental issues are complex. We’re here to help newsrooms cover the problems and potential solutions.

Where We Work

The Mississippi River drains 42% of the continental United States. The river system powers commerce, provides drinking water to millions, and defines the region’s character.
