Want to ensure long-term profitability and sustainability? 

Climate change has had significant impacts on agriculture in Illinois, including extreme weather impacts and challenges with integrated pest management. Impacts are projected to intensify with future warming, but solutions exist to both mitigate and adapt agriculture to climate change and its impacts. We'll discuss climate change, its impacts, and the important roles of soil and water conservation to improve long-term profit, sustainability, and resilience.

Decision support tools and climate monitoring for agriculture | 1 PM February 23

The Midwestern Regional Climate Center (MRCC) is the regional host for free, online historical and near real-time climate and weather monitoring. Utilizing data from federally-funded weather station networks, the MRCC has developed several tools and resources that may be useful and usable to the agricultural community for planning and risk assessment purposes. This presentation will highlight some key value-added products that were developed specifically for the agricultural stakeholders as well as provide an opportunity to learn more about the climate data and monitoring needs from the community that would benefit planning and yield.
