102 Symposium--Adapting Agricultural Practices to Extreme Weather Events

Oral Session
ASA Section: Climatology & Modeling
Climate-related impacts on agriculture result from the interaction of climate-related hazards with the vulnerability and exposure of human and natural systems. This symposium aims to describe extreme weather events  (e.g. heat waves, drought, extreme precipitation, wind erosion, flood, etc.), and to present adaptive solutions (genetics, cropping practices, cover crops) or tools (models) for implementing long-term mitigation strategies that stakeholders could utilize.

Approved for 3 CM CEUs.
