Iowa Learning Farms Webinar: Adapting Agricultural Management in a Changing Climate
July 26 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Iowa Learning Farms conservation webinar taking place July 26 at noon CDT will feature Dennis Todey, Ph.D., director, USDA Midwest Climate Hub. Todey works at the boundary of agriculture and climate helping develop new information and sharing that information to improve decision making throughout the region.
In the webinar, “Agriculture and Climate Change in Iowa and the Midwest – Adaptation, Mitigation and Decision Making,” Todey will provide an overview of several major climate change issues impacting agriculture in the region. He will also introduce some lesser-known issues and discuss the breadth of climate change impacts. Todey will provide guidance on strategies farmers could utilize to address these issues in their planning and management decisions to help ensure future success.
“The changes impacting agriculture are complex and difficult to fully grasp, yet we are already making changes and must continue to adapt to a changing climate,” said Todey. “As impacts continue to occur, achieving a better understanding of the path for agriculture in dealing with the wide range of climate issues is critical. However, strategies to mitigate potential risks add to already complicated decision making in agricultural management. It is not a simple topic, but one that is important to the future of agriculture, and I hope to offer insights that will get more people throughout the agriculture landscape thinking about ways to respond to a changing climate.”
