Wisconsin Drought Resource

August 23rd, 2012 | Posted in: Growing Vegetables, News

The summer of 2012 has been challenging — high temperatures coupled with drought conditions. And it has people asking a lot of questions. How will the drought affect me? Will it affect my food prices? Will my lawn survive? What about my garden?

As farmers, we understand — and we recommend the www.wisconsindrought.org website as a resource for gardeners and non-gardeners alike. The site offers:

  • Information concerning climate change
  • Gardening advice for drought conditions
  • Interviews with a variety of experts concerning the effect of the drought on crops, wildlife and the environment
  • Burning restriction notices
  • Drought monitoring tools and charts
  • Advice on staying cool
