Farmer Climate Forums: Developing Climate Resilient Water Management Plans for Diverse Cropping Systems

March 28 @ 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.

Because of climate change, it can be more difficult than ever to plan for meeting the water needs of your crops. Answering questions around the nuances of crop water needs, how to identify and utilize appropriate water sources, and how to know if your water supply will be sustainable into the future, are all becoming more challenging to answer. In this forum Dr. Rachel Schattman will discuss how to acquire the information needed to develop climate resilient farm water plans and cover emerging opportunities for improving water management strategies in diversified cropping systems. Schattman’s presentation will be followed by a facilitated farmer-to-farmer discussion. Come to listen, share your experiences, ask questions, troubleshoot, and be inspired about new systems that may make your own farm more climate resilient.
