Extension offers drought-related resources
As this summer's drought conditions continue to impact Minnesota, the University of Minnesota Extension Service's drought-impacts website connects Minnesotans to the most up-to-date information on drought topics related to crops, livestock, horticulture and heat safety, as well as the most recent U.S. Drought Monitor map.
Extension's Farm Information Line (800-232-9077), staffed Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., continues to be a source for producers with questions about drought effects on crops and livestock. Questions at other times of the day and on weekends can be left on voice mail and will be returned during staffed hours.
In addition, questions can be emailed to the Farm Information Line at firstname.lastname@example.org, and a written response will be returned.
