The Southeast Climate Hub connects public, academic, and private sector organizations with researchers and outreach specialists to deliver technical support and provide tools that help producers cope with challenges associated with drought, heat stress, excessive moisture, changes in pest pressures.
The Southeast Hub works to maintain and strengthen agricultural production, natural resource management, and rural economic development under increasing climate variability. We work with USDA partners to deliver information and guidance on technologies and risk management practices at regional and local scales -- which helps with everyday decisions on the farm, field, and forest.
Learn about our regional climate trends, projections, and natural variability in this Southeast Climate Factsheet.
Read about how climate and weather variability affects our region's agriculture, forestry, and livestock industries and how landowners and land managers can better understand and address unexpected changes in weather and related impacts in the Southeast Vulnerability Assessment.
