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.

Hurricane Preparedness UGA Extension offers several resources to help Georgians prepare for hurricanes and tropical storms and what steps to take after they have passed. View our list of resources to ensure you are properly prepared for a hurricane.
