Ibach encourages use of UNL resources to aid in recovery
Nebraska Director of Agriculture Greg Ibach is encouraging farmers who recently lost acres to hail and other storm damage to take advantage of resources being offered by University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension.
“While severe storm damage is never good, last week’s widespread hail came at a critical time for Nebraska farmers. They now will have to weigh important decisions regarding whether crops can recover, whether to replant, what to replant, and how insurance coverage factors into all of these,” Ibach said.
UNL Extension is hosting meetings in areas with significant damage. Speakers will share information regarding replant decision making, cover crop options and insurance coverage.
Details on these meetings, as well as other resources for post-storm crop issues, can be found at UNL’s Extension Cropwatch website, http://cropwatch.unl.edu.
“I appreciate the efforts of Extension and other officials who are making themselves available for these meetings,” Ibach said.
