About this Issue

We've just released the Spring edition of DroughtScape. During the first quarter of 2018 unusual dryness in the Southern Plains and Southwest led to secretarial drought designations for many counties.  We partnered with local, state and national organizations to provide workshops and webinars to assist ag producers and agencies in the drought affected areas, and traveled to New Zealand, Africa and South America to help new organizations develop their capacity to deal with future droughts. 

Other stories this quarter include:

  • New drought maps show regional and river forecast areas
  • Ag records impacts; strong fire season forecast
  • NDMC releases 2017 Annual Report
