Useful site for farmers

Here is a useful site for farmers concerned with the impacts of harmful weather on their crops. USDA has a page which collects information on programs to help farmers recover from drought, hurricanes and other severe weather at https://www.farmers.gov/.  If you are a farmer or work with them, this might have some links worth checking out.

Auburn University researchers, including Auburn’s Brenda Ortiz (center), are working with other universities and agencies in the state to demonstrate and promote irrigation on farms.
