New Mexico State University’s Cooperative Extension Service has a wide variety of educational publications to help New Mexicans face drought issues.
Topics of these publications range from agronomy to livestock and rangeland management to home gardening and landscaping.
Subjects range from agronomic principles to help with farming during drought periods and drip irrigation for row crops; from various weed poisoning of livestock and horses to using byproduct food stuffs in grazing nutrition; and from landscape water conservation to how to build low-pressure drip irrigation systems.
A new website, www.aces.nmsu.edu/pubs/_drought, provides easy access to the listing of these publications.
