About the Southern Plains Climate Hub

Thank you for visiting the website of the
USDA Southern Plains Climate Hub.

Our regional team is pleased to provide our partners and stakeholders in the states of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas with the science-based weather and climate information they need to reduce risk and improve profitability. 

At the Climate Hub, we conduct applied research and synthesize, translate, and communicate new scientific advances to agricultural audiences in our region. We assess producer vulnerabilities to weather and climate extremes and changes, establish adaptation demonstrations in partnership with USDA agencies, regional universities, and Tribal nations, and support the creation of new tools and technologies that can enhance production agriculture. We also engage numerous agricultural managers and landowners through outreach events such as field days and producer seminars, and design new climate-based educational resources for both students and professionals. 

Please have a look around our new website at the many information resources that are available, and do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
