WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas farm groups are holding two workshops next week to help ranchers better decide how to prepare for droughts.

Organizers say the sessions are designed to help ranchers understand the interaction of plants and climate, and how they can make grazing decisions based on their observations.

The workshops are Monday at the Natural Resources Conservation Service office in Emporia and Tuesday at the NRCS office in Salina. The free sessions run from 9:30 a.m. and finish mid-afternoon.

The Kansas Graziers Association is hosting the workshops with the NRCS.
