University of Tennessee Extension Organizes a Drought Information Website
It is no secret that Tennessee is experiencing a drought and that August is on track to be the hottest on record.
Despite scattered rain and showers, home lawns have dried up, crops and pastures are very stressed, and the entire state has been declared eligible for federal agricultural disaster assistance. Areas in other states across the region are experiencing similar conditions.
To help farmers and consumers confront the situation, University of Tennessee Extension has organized information about the effects of the drought on plants and animals on a central website. Visit http://utextension.tennessee.edu/Drought2007/
