Resilient Agriculture: Weather Ready publication available on flipping book

Resilient Agriculture: Weather Ready Farms has been reissued as a flipping book by the Extension Foundation. The publication was created by a team of Extension professionals to help the agricultural industry become more resilient to weather extremes, climate variability, and climate change. Based on the Weather Ready Farms model developed by Nebraska Extension, the publication focuses primarily on field crop farms and producers in the Great Plains and Midwest regions of the United States. However, many of the topics, concepts, and discussions explored in the publication - including best practices - can be used and adapted for other regions and agricultural operations.

Authors and contributors represent a number of institutions, including the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Purdue University, USDA Climate Hubs (Midwest and Northern Plains), and the High Plains Regional Climate Center.

The project was supported by a grant from the New Technologies in Agricultural Extension (NTAE) program. The team was supported in their work by the Extension Foundation.
