Dry Horizons: Reducing drought damages on ag

November 15, 2017


The November edition of Dry Horizons featured an article from the Economic Research Services in which the U.S. Department of Agriculture showed drought poses the most significant risk to agriculture production and income nationally. It is a greater risk than flooding, early frosts or pests, and yet, many conservation policies already in place may help mitigate the effects of drought at the farm level.

Also in this edition:

  • The EPA gives guidance to water utilities in responding to drought; and
  • A new case study looks at how one Nebraska town reacted to the 2012 drought.
