Helping Farmers Cope with Changing Climate

Drought, flooding, new pests brought on by temporal changes in the onset and duration of the growing season—these are only a few climate related challenges that Wisconsin farmers have to deal with. A range of experts in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences help farmers with climate related growing concerns. From breeding drought-resistant plants strains to dealing with pests and monitoring weather changes in the field, CALS faculty from agronomy, horiticulture, soil sciences, entomology and other disciplines provide assistance.
