Climate, Water, & Agriculture Webinar Series

Weather and climate are among the most important uncontrolled variables in agricultural systems. While access to fresh and abundant water is one of Great Lakes Agriculture’s greatest assets, increasing water use to meet the needs of residents, industry and agriculture has the potential to alter how we allocate our water resources. The additional impacts associated with climate variability and change have the potential to add further challenges to farmers’ production of food, fiber and fuel. In order to lead the discussion on these challenging issues Michigan State University specialists, researchers and Extension educators from throughout the university along with representatives from USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality will present a series of webinars for farmers, agricultural professionals, state and national agency personnel and interested stakeholders, discussing the important role water plays in modern agriculture production along with the long term impacts of climate variability and change. The series of five webinars starts on March 9, 2012 and will run for four consecutive Fridays, skip Good Friday (April 6, 2012), with the fifth webinar planned for Friday, April 13, 2012. Each webinar is scheduled to run from 1:00pm to 2:00pm EST. More information on the webinars and the schedule of presenters can be found at: http://bit.ly/msueclimatewater.
