Navajo farmers seek solutions to drought and heat
Farmers from the Navajo Nation are searching for ways to deal with heat and water shortage problems on the reservation.

Some farmers are being forced out of the field due to the drought. So some are looking to the New Mexico State University's Agricultural Science Center, which occupies a portion of a farm on the reservation, for new solutions.

"We're looking for a lot of good ideas," Bobby Yazzie, a Navajo farmer, told The Farmington Daily Times. "We're thinking about drilling for water or building earth dams to store it."
