Michigan is launching an online resource hub for farmers who will need assistance this year.
Farmers in the state have struggled with the weather so far this year, from severe cold to historic rainfall. As a result, there have been devastating impacts for the agricultural sector.
On Wednesday, the state’s Department of Agriculture launched an online resource portal to create a one-stop spot for farmers to find the help they will need.
In parts of the state, many farmers are a number of weeks behind schedule due to the conditions. Many are quickly running out of both planting time, and planting options.
