UNL Extension launches new drought resources website


Nebraska

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension has created a new website that offers resources from the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources and others for dealing with drought in the region. The site is at droughtresources.unl.edu.

"As we Nebraskans know, our weather brings new challenges every year," said Kathleen Lodl, UNL Extension associate dean. "Last year it was flooding, this year it's drought. UNL Extension has a deep wealth of research-based, unbiased expertise, and our new website will give Nebraskans quick, easy access to that expertise."

"By all accounts," Lodl added, "it appears the 2012 drought may be one for the record books. While we can't control that, we can do our best to manage water resources to mitigate damage. That's what we're committed to in UNL Extension."

The new site includes links to information on crops, livestock, economics, water, families and home and garden. It will include the latest weather forecasts from state climatologist Al Dutcher, as well as links to such ongoing programming as "Market Journal", CropWatch, "Backyard Farmer", UNL Extension publications, UNL news releases and links to a number of key resources outside the university.
