The University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture has launched a site with easy-to-find information for Arkansas farmers, ranchers and homeowners coping with drought.
The site can be found at http://arkansasdroughtresourcecenter.wordpress.com/ or the shortlink, http://wp.me/2zudK.
There are pages devoted to Animals/Livestock, Burn bans/Water restrictions, Crops, Economics, Fisheries/aquaculture, Forestry/wildlife, Home/landscape, Legal and Water Management.
There are also pages with drought-related news and events and a page of links to other drought-related resources.
“We wanted to create a single place where our farmers, ranchers and homeowners could easily find the information they need now,” said Deborah Tootle, associate professor-Community and Economic Development for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.
