By  | 

LANSING, MI (WILX) - The severe cold and frequent rain this year has not made farming easy in the state of Michigan this year.

Farmers in Michigan have a new online resource. It was created by MDARD and will be frequently updated.

Farmers in many parts of the state find themselves weeks behind schedule.

To help farmers out, state officials at the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development have created a one-stop LINK: online resource and information portal.

The department launched the website on Thursday.

It will be constantly updated with new information for farmers and as additional aid is identified.

The site also includes resources from agricultural partners like Michigan State University Extension and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
