Southern Wisconsin is now in drought conditions that rival those of 1988, according to a UW-Extension news release. These conditions pose challenges for all Wisconsin residents, both urban and rural.
Potential crop losses may prove stressful to cash grain farmers as they struggle to meet commitments, and for livestock farmers who require large amounts of quality feed and forage. Urban residents wonder what to do about their lawns, gardens and trees. Everyone is concerned about heat exhaustion.
Answers to many drought-related questions can be found online at University of Wisconsin-Extension, Cooperative Extension’s “Extension Responds”
“Through the coordinated effort of our county-based educators and campus-based specialists, Cooperative Extension is able to quickly respond to local needs,” said Richard M. Klemme, UW-Extension, Cooperative Extension dean and director.
