Maine Hay Crop Needs Rain, Kersbergen Says

Rick Kersbergen of the UMaine Cooperative Extension faculty is the lead source for a Bangor Daily News story looking at the impact of the summer’s dry weather on Maine’s August hay crop.  Kersbegen, who estimates that 30 to 40 percent of Maine is experiencing drought, notes that corn and other “shallow-rooted” crops are also feeling the impact of dry conditions.
