Ohio’s farm crisis: What farmers can do to deal with extreme weather

What can Ohio farmers do about the state’s recent record rainfall? How can they handle prevented planting and other issues caused by that rain? Going forward, how can they help their farms adapt to our wetter, warming world? Those and other questions will be answered at Climate Smart: Farming with Weather Extremes, a conference set for Thursday, July 18, in Plain City.

Developing resilient, ‘Climate Smart’ farming

Co-hosted by CFAES and the State Climate Office of Ohio, the event will feature expert speakers from the two organizations, a keynote speaker sharing insights gained from Nebraska’s recent spring flooding, and a panel discussion by farmers.

Admission is free and open to the public. Lunch is included if you register by Thursday, July 11. For more information, read the CFAES press release. You can register to attend (and reserve your lunch) here. (Photo: Getty Images.)
