     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Agriculture Department is adding an online map to its Drought Hotline program. The hotline helps connect producers who need hay and those with hay to sell, or pasture or hay land to rent. Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the online map on the department website details locations from which calls have come. The Drought Hotline number is 701-425-8454. It is answered weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Callers can leave a message on evenings and weekends. The service is free.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Drone technology is helping some farmers in North Dakota keep tabs on their livelihood like never before. Jeremy Wilson has been planting corn, soybeans and wheat in the Fargo area for nearly two decades and has seen his share of advancements in technology. Wilson says the relatively inexpensive drone technology is giving him a new aerial look at his fields and fertility issues. He tells WDAY-TV it helps him spend less time and money and be more productive.
 
     Agricultural companies, including Peterson Farms Seed, are also exploring the ways drones can be used in crop development. Peterson spokesman Nolan Berg says that rather than walking into a field or taking a look from a pickup truck, drones provide a whole new perspective on field conditions.
