The Vermont Agency of Agriculture (VAA) is compiling a report on effects of the rain & flooding on certain horticultural crops in Vermont. The report will include:
1. Damage to crops
2. Damage to agricultural infrastructure (buildings, equipment, etc.)
3. Planting delays
4. Delayed pest management procedures (e.g. spraying)
5. Other flood/rain related issues
If you have experienced any of these due to 2011 spring flooding, please report the impact to the Vermont Agency of Agriculture by Thursday. Governor Shumlin will use this information to ask for Federal emergency assistance.
To report, email Steve Justis at email@example.com. Please keep “2011 spring flooding event” in the subject line for your response.
