Support for Michigan Farmers

Throughout Michigan and the Midwest, prolonged wet weather and flooding have put farmers in a difficult position as the spring planting season is coming to a close. With unprecedented rainfall, farmers have had to delay planting and adjust management practices. MSU Extension has a statewide network of agricultural educators tracking growing conditions, speaking with farmers and writing educational articles about how farmers can adjust to these inhospitable conditions and difficult choices. Jeff Dwyer director of MSU Extension said “The crisis facing Michigan agriculture right now is acute, and we hear heartbreaking stories every day from our educators who work with farmers. These families need support now more than ever.” For more information about the MSU Extension Managing Farm Stress program, visit To access the suite of resources and information available from MSU Extension, visit
