Building Resilience in Agriculture

Is weather variability within or across years causing challenges on your operation? Are you thinking about possible risks and opportunities in a changing climate?

Minimizing risk and ensuring your operation is resilient from the ground up (literally) requires a fine balance between the science and art of management and decision making.

The USDA Northern Plains Climate Hub strives to provide unbiased information about adaptation and mitigation strategies for ranchers, farmers, and foresters to experiment with to help increase their operations' resilience to weather variability and a changing climate. We invite you to visit our website regularly to explore our growing scientific understanding of management strategies.
