The impact of the drought continues to become more serious in parts of New Hampshire.
As we have reported in recent weeks, agriculture is taking a serious hit.
On Friday, Gov. Maggie Hassan sent a letter to U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack requesting a drought disaster designation for farmers in Grafton, Rockingham, and Strafford counties. The USDA Farm Service Agency's State Emergency Board voted earlier this week for the state to seek a disaster declaration.
Crop losses in the designated counties have exceeded 30 percent, with mixed forage alfalfa/grass, pumpkins and blue berries particularly affected.
The designation would automatically qualify the counties for any disaster-related programs or assistance. Other portions of the state could be added to the request as crop losses mount.
