Description

Webinar: Climate Change & Corn Belt Agriculture in the Midwest

Abstract

Corn is one of the key world food commodities, just behind rice. Severe weather events associated with climate change are forecast to increase in number and intensity. These are predicted to increase nutrient runoff and have the potential to decrease corn crop yields. This webinar will focus on climate predictions for the Midwest; research findings from the USDA grant “Climate change, mitigation, and adaptation in corn based cropping systems,” a $20 million grant focused on ensuring food stability; and impacts for Lake Erie.
