Document the Drought: USDA U.S. Drought Monitor Offers Producers a Voice to Report Drought Impacts

The U.S. Drought Monitor’s reporting feature offers producers an opportunity to submit drought impact and condition reports.

The USDA, in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, produced the U.S. Drought Monitor to include a reporting feature that allows producers to report local drought impacts and conditions.

The report allows producers to:

Provide a written description of drought impacts on livelihood, activities, etc.;
Select categories to show losses and gains as a result of the drought;
Report on the duration of drought event;
Select Affected Places – geographic areas ranging from an entire state to a small area within a state;
Submit images that document the drought and its impact;
Provide contact information (includes an option to keep information confidential).

The reporting tool for producers to record the effects of the drought can be accessed at the following link:

More information including state specific drought impact maps can be found on the U. S. Drought Monitor homepage:


Please contact your local FSA Office.
