Monday, November 13, 2017. 11:00AM. Webinar: Climate Considerations for Dryland Farmers. Liz Allen, Washington State University; Katherine Hegewisch, University of Idaho. Sponsored by U.S. Department of Agriculture, Climate Learning Network and Regional Approaches to Climate Change (REACCH) - Pacific Northwest Agriculture. More information here.
Dryland wheat producers in the inland Pacific Northwest are skilled at managing for many kinds of risks and uncertainties. Managing under observed and projected climate change impacts will require farmers and other agriculture sector decision makers to develop their understanding of climate-related uncertainties and hazards. In this webinar, Dr. Katherine Hegewisch, University of Idaho, and Dr. Liz Allen, Washington State University, will explore how climate patterns influence dryland agriculture in the inland Pacific Northwest and look at expected impacts of climate change in the region. They will discuss examples of growers in the region implementing production practices that will enhance the resilience of farmland under projected future changes. They will also provide specific guidance about how producers can access online tools and apply information from models to a broad range of production management decisions.
