Farming Success in an Uncertain Climate is a four page fact sheet that briefly presents the most likely weather-related challenges associated with climate change (flooding, drought, increased pest and weed pressure, heat stress in crops and livestock) that farmers in the Northeast will face along with some targeted risk management solutions most suitable for conventional farmers. Although this resource is oriented towards conventional production systems, it provides a useful overview of current and expected weather-related risks in the Northeast region.
