The last 30 days have brought unseasonably warm and dry weather to most of Nebraska, which was welcomed by many farmers trying to harvest their crops. This pattern was somewhat unexpected after a cool and wet September, but this weather was much needed to aid in crop maturity and dry-down, as well as dry harvesting conditions.
I am excited to announce an upcoming opportunity for everyone involved in the agricultural industry. University of Nebraska - Lincoln Extension will be hosting the Climate Resilient Agriculture: Tools and Resources for Agricultural Decisions in Holdrege, NE on November 19th at the Phelps County Ag Center. This conference is the first of its kind in Nebraska and will provide topics on the latest ag climate resources from UNL, a climate forecast, risk management strategies for cropping systems using climate information, among other related topics. For information or to register for this FREE (thanks to a SARE grant) conference, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I study weather and climate impacts on agriculture, climate variability, and using weather and climate information to make better agricultural decisions.
