Iowa's grain and fertilizer transportation and distribution systems are undergoing major changes. Some rail lines are being upgraded; others are being abandoned. Major grain elevator expansions have been completed at some locations, and other grain and fertilizer facility expansions are being considered. Information on both the volume of grain likely to be moved out of Iowa counties and on the required in shipments of fertilizer in future years is needed to guide decisions on grain and fertilizer transportation and distribution facility expansion, relocation, or abandonment.
