Arkansas Business news partner THV 11 News takes a look at the still-unfolding Turner Grain Merchandising situation, noting state Agriculture Department Secretary Butch Calhoun's assistance request to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
THV 11 also talks to a farmer, Dewayne Chappell, who's owed money by Turner for corn the company purchased.
"I had corn booked, upwards of $5 and now it is $3.60 delivered 20 miles away," Chappell tells THV 11's Alyssa Raymond. "It is quite a bit of difference in price."
Chappell says he also sold wheat to Turner and received payment.
