Impacts and Opportunities of Climate Change on Northeast Crops and Livestock: Part 1

November 27, 1:00pm – 1:45pm 

Northeast Climate Hub partners have published two new studies exploring how a changing climate is affecting regional crops and livestock - hear from the lead authors of these studies.

A New Shallow Groundwater Well for Small Agriculture Supply

Webinar participants will learn how shallow groundwater from glacial till aquifers can provide a high quality water supply for agricultural and domestic use.

Who Needs Irrigation in the Northeast?

This webinar will cover recent and ongoing research designed to help Northeast vegetable producers improve on-farm water efficiency.

Agroforestry in a Changing Climate: Challenges, Opportunities and Resources for the Mid-Atlantic

An introduction to the emerging climate challenges over the next century focused on regions within the Mid-Atlantic, and the potential opportunities agroforestry can provide in mitigation and adaptation.

Runoff Forecasting Tools in Nutrient Management 

This webinar will provide an overview of several runoff forecasting tools that are being developed for nutrient management in the Northeastern U.S.

2017

Energy Strategies for Farm Resilience in the Northeast

This webinar looks at how energy-oriented design and operation can impact the resilience (the capacity to recover quickly from challenges) and long term success of farm operations, as well as identify common energy strategies for farm viability and resilience.

Agricultural Decision Tools from the Cornell Climate Smart Farming Program and the Network for Environment and Weather Applications

Learn how to navigate the Network for Environment and Weather Applications (NEWA) and Cornell Climate Smart Farming (CSF) Program websites and use their agricultural decision-making tools based on weather and climate.

Automated Access to Free NOAA Weather Data for Use in Ag Decision Models

Use available UNIX-based scripts to automate access to free weather data from NOAA/NWS databases, as well as examples of how such data can be translated into weather-based farm management decisions by automated analysis and export of presentation graphics through Microsoft Excel.

2016

Best Management Practices for On-Farm Climate Change Resilience in the Northeast: Social, Ecological and Economic Implications

Participants will become aware of the social, ecological and economic drivers and implications of certain management practices that may reduce farm-scale risks producers in the northeast face because of climate change.

Climate Change Impacts on Nutrient Runoff and the Effectiveness of Best Management Practices

Participate to understand collaborative modeling approaches that are available to assess the impacts of climate change on critical source areas (CSAs) of watershed nutrient pollution (e.g., N,P,TSS), how best management practices (BMPs) will perform under alternative climate trends, and possible extension approaches to improve BMP adoption.

Climate Change and its Effects on Animal Agriculture

Participate in this webinar to understand the current and potential effects that climate change will have on livestock farmers across the country.

Cornell's Climate Smart Farming Program: Research, Tools, and Extension Support for Farmers in NY and the Northeast 

Learn how climate change is affecting agriculture in the Northeast, and how Cornell University is developing new resources through its Climate Smart Farming (CSF) program to help farmers to make more informed decisions to increase resiliency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the face of climate change.

Emerging Manure to Energy Technologies - Are Cost Effective Small Scale Digesters Possible?

Participate to understand the potential viability of small-scale manure digesters and available resources through the REAP program and how to leverage with other federal programs.
