No matter how agriculture changes, one thing stays the same: Weather can dictate crop success or failure. It also influences decisions about livestock, home and commercial landscaping, city planning and just about anything outdoors.

UGA Extension is here to provide resources and advice on dealing with weather-related issues in agriculture and everyday home life.
