  • Farm planning and financial planning provide stability and security for now and the future, reducing anxiety.

  • Physical health supports overall well-being, enabling farmers to withstand demanding tasks required in their work.

  • Emergency/crisis management and farm safety ensure preparedness and reduce potential sources of stress and trauma.

Climate Change Resources

The climate is changing, and those changes are affecting growing conditions for all crops, including vegetables and fruit. Climate change impacts are not the same in every area, but there are some trends that we are seeing across the Midwest, namely temperature increases and more precipitation extremes.

At the same time that farmers must adapt to these climate challenges, there is pressure on all economic sectors, including agriculture, to reduce their emissions. Fortunately, some adaptation strategies also help mitigate agriculture’s overall greenhouse gas emissions.

Find resources on general climate trends and impacts, along with both adaptation and mitigation strategies, in this catalog.
