The state of knowledge regarding climate change and variability impacts on adaptation options for Florida agriculture, forestry and rangelands | November 15 @ 11 A.M. Eastern

November 15, 2023

As the climate continues to change and become more variable, the working lands of Florida will experience increased production risks from hurricanes, drought, saltwater intrusion, flooding, insect, disease, and wildfire. Additionally, working conditions will likely deteriorate as air temperatures rise.  The causes of these stresses are complex, and cannot be easily solved.  However, producers can adapt management practices to reduce commodity risk and decrease the recovery time following a disturbance.  This talk will present the most recent assessment of climate change impacts for Florida, and will provide examples of how working land sustainability can be increased.  Material for this talk will be derived from current research findings and the just released Fifth National Climate Assessment.
