Dalrymple Declares Agricultural Emergency
Much of the country is suffering with severe drought, and much of North Dakota has been added to the list. Today Governor Dalrymple signed an executive order declaring an agricultural emergency. The declaration requires state agencies to prepare drought response support services. The U.S. Drought Monitor Index shows 87 percent of our state is experiencing drought conditions and portions of 20 counties are under severe drought.
In response, State Ag Commissioner Doug Goehring today ordered land enrolled in the state`s Waterbank Program will be available to ranchers for haying and grazing.
