Cornell to Open up the Institute for Climate Change & Agriculture
The American agriculture industry is set to face unprecedented challenges from climate change. In response, Cornell University plans to utilize its Institute for Climate Change & Agriculture to help farmers tackle the challenges associated with changes in temperature and overall varying surrounding conditions. As many producers already experience the impact of climate change, further research and resource investment is needed towards these greenhouse and atmospheric conditions. The Institute for Climate Change and Agriculture serves as a central hub of research, education, and outreach to reduce the agricultural sectors’ collective impact on the climate, and help farmers to build resilience to climate change.
