We have seen in the headlines the drought crisis that is impacting farmers and ranchers across the state. Governor Burgum has declared a state of emergency in areas facing these challenges. Agriculture remains a vital backbone for our region’s economy, so what kind of ripple effects can we expect from the drought?  How are those farmers and ranchers impacted by this crisis handling it and how do they move forward?

Join us to hear from a panel of experts who are examining these challenges. Dr. Frayne Olson, Agribusiness & Applied Economics at North Dakota State University, Dr. Greg Lardy, assistant vice president of agriculture affairs at NDSU, and Daryl Ritchison, interim director of the North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network, will all share their perspective.
