The North Central Climate Collaborative (NC3) is working to increase the flow and usability of climate information for Extension, farmers, natural resource managers, and communities by hosting bimonthly webinars on climate and water throughout 2018 and 2019.
Adaptation Resources for Agriculture: A tool for assisting agriculture producers in adapting to climate variability and change
Monday, August 26, 2019 from 1-2PM CT
Mike Wilson, NRCS Senior Scientist
Tune in to this month’s webinar and hear from Mike Wilson, Senior Scientist at NRCS and one of the authors of Adaptation Resources for Agriculture, a publication by the USDA Climate Hubs (USDA Hubs Publication). The workbook is designed to allow extension specialists, technical service providers, and others to guide producers through a five-step process to better understand the short and long-term impacts of climate on their production system and how they can meet their land management goals while considering climate variability. Processes in this workbook are key to creating an open dialogue for discussing producer motivations and developing an action-based response. Mike will overview the purpose of the publication, how the workbook was developed, and the framework of actions that help agricultural communities prepare for changing conditions.
