Growers Asked to Use Irrigation to Help Prevent Wind Storm

Blowing sand and dust across Highway I-39 between Plover and Plainfield caused a chain-reaction multiple vehicle crash on Sunday, May 3.  More than three dozen vehicles were involved in crashes and multiple injuries were reported as visibility was severely reduced.

High winds are expected again this weekend, so the WPVGA is asking any and all growers who own land along I-39 to please consider running your irrigation systems if you have them. This is a public safety issue and we should do everything we can to prevent wind erosion from causing accidents.  The WPVGA thanks you in advance for your consideration.
