In *All, Water Security by AgIsAmerica

The dry summer heat has hit the west coast particularly hard and Washington State University is getting more aggressive about preventing drought’s impact on crops.

Thanks to a sizable grant from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Washington State University is continuing its development of drought-resistant crops to maintain Washington and the world’s increased reliance on grains. Further improvement in creating crops resistant to weather challenges will lead to greater crop yield stability and quantity for farmers and increased food supply for consumers.
