Strategies for Managing Drought in the Northern Plains The purpose of this drought response plan is 1) to describe the drought indicators and alternative key species should be identified using site-specific and/or past monitoring data. Evaluations should be used to determine if plants are exhibiting signs of drought stress and if vegetation.

      from book Plant Responses to Drought Stress Ca is likely to be reduced under drought (Scaife and Clarkson ). Additional might be another interesting strategy for conferring drought tol-. Drought risk mitigation measures. There are practical measures that can be taken starting immediately. Both measures and actions – also called drought risk management options – that either build greater resilience to drought or reduce the impacts of drought when it occurs can be deployed.

        Mitigation strategies The most obvious mitigation strategy is to conserve the water supplies that already exist. Whenever a water shortage or drought threatens an area, water resource managers do all they can to convince water users to change wasteful habits and develop an attitude of appreciation for every drop of this precious resource.

In addition, the drought of and can be said to be the worst drought in the history of the region as it affected all the zones and lasted for more than months in three zones.

View Show. A drought is a period of drier-than-normal conditions that results in water-related amount of precipitation at a particular location varies from year to year, but over a period of years, the average amount is fairly constant.

In the deserts of the Southwest, the average precipitation is less than 3 inches per year. In contrast, the average precipitation in the. An alternative strategy for hay production during drought, however, is to ignore forage nutritive value and concentrate solely on total dry matter production.

Under this scenario, forage is allowed to accumulate at the expense of nutritive value. This may be the best strategy. The city of Santa Cruz, California, is also being commended on their drought management strategies in this article from Government Executive.
