Drought is one of the top concerns for Minnesota agriculture right now. “As I meet with farmers, we’ve been talking a lot about what can be done to help,” said Minnesota Representative Michelle Fischbach. “If this drought continues, we’ll need to be dealing with things over the winter, making sure farmers have what they need to survive next spring.” Fischbach said the House is also considering an extension of the WHIP+ program. “We passed the bill out of committee and it’s been sent to the House floor.” Fischbach attended Farmfest in southern Minnesota and also met with farmers in the Fargo-Moorhead area in the last week.
