Extension assistance for Drought issues
UNL Extension has a faculty team assisting Nebraskans
with many difficult decisions resulting from drought such as alternative
feed supplies, managing higher food costs, and reducing water use in
agriculture and urban green space. US Senator Mike Johanns was briefed
by representatives of this team on the drought earlier this year. “We
had some of the best people in the university system around the table
giving me this briefing,” Johanns said. “And I was so pleased by the
quality of the people that were there in their understanding of row
crop problems, range problems, just the whole gamut of drought issues,
and I think whatever we can do to support those people and build that
capacity will pay huge, huge dividends for our state in the future.”
