North Carolina State University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences scientists and educators are working to help North Carolinians cope with the drought. This site contains information for use by Extension agents and others on drought and crops, horses, livestock, gardens and landscapes, nursery crops, timber and turfgrass. It also contains information on water harvesting. North Carolina Cooperative Extension specialists, agents, and Master Gardener volunteers have compiled  information about drought management for North Carolinians through a number of educational programs. These efforts rely on the best research-based science from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at North Carolina State University and other sources as well as guidance from local government policies regarding water use and any restrictions in place due to drought. Some of these Extension programs are described here.
