Vegetation Drought Response Index
VegDRI was presented at the Drought Planning Tools Workshop held at the Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center in San Angelo, TX. In addition to VegDRI, workshop participants were introduced to a number of other complimentary drought monitoring tools being developed at the National Drought Mitigation Center (NDMC), such as the Drought Impact Reporter (DIR) (http://droughtreporter.unl.edu/) and Drought Atlas. The workshop had 80+ attendees that included local ranchers and farmers, local and state government representatives, Texas A&M extension experts, and National Weather Service personnel.
