Kloetzli says farmers, gardeners still need to know how to deal with drought, BDN reports

The Bangor Daily News reported Cathryn Kloetzli, an agriculture and food systems professional with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, is advising farmers and gardeners to learn how to deal with drought, even though parched growing seasons are rare in Maine and moisture levels in the ground are likely to increase due to the growing snowpack. UMaine Extension recently put together a list of resources to help farmers and gardeners deal with drought. “Maine is a very water-rich state, and [a drought] is maybe not something that is on people’s radar,” Kloetzli told the BDN. “But because we have an uncertain climate, we wanted to just raise awareness to things that can be done to help.”
