Farmer Climate Forums: Approaching Nutrient Management in a Changing Climate

March 14 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

This three part forum series is supported by NOFA-VT and MOFGA. Our first session is focused on vegetable producers, our second session is focused on livestock producers, and our third session is focused on whole-farm water management planning across production types.

Dynamic weather patterns brought about by a changing climate pose new challenges to producers throughout the Northeast. Among them is the question of how to appropriately manage nutrient availability in response to increased weather volatility. In this forum, Becky Madden will discuss how to proactively approach nutrient management decision making leading up to and throughout a season. With a focus on understanding the ways in which extreme weather patterns impact farm fertility, we will explore how to apply farm management strategies to better build resilience into crop production systems. After her presentation, participants will engage in a facilitated discussion, sharing their experiences, successes and challenges in adjusting nutrient management approaches in response to climate change. Come to listen, share your experiences, ask questions, troubleshoot, and be inspired about new systems that may make your own farm more climate resilient.
