A Purdue Extension program in Hartford City on Aug. 7 will help farmers in east-central Indiana better understand issues resulting from flooded crops and give them information to help them recover. The meeting will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lake Placid Christian Conference Center at 397 S. 200 E in the Blackford County community.

Twenty-eight minority high school students are on the Purdue University campus through Saturday (July 25) in a program that exposes them to educational and career opportunities in agriculture.
Indiana's flood-ravaged grain crops could still produce a modest yield, but the chances for recovery are becoming increasingly slim with more rain forecast for parts of the state over the next two weeks, Purdue Extension experts say.
Purdue Extension is conducting a mail survey to determine how Indiana farmers would like to receive information about conservation practices and how effective they perceive Extension demonstration sites and field days to be.
