Producer Climate Education Workshop Dec. 5 at Scottsbluff

Agricultural producers can learn more about climate tools available from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln High Plains Regional Climate Center (HPRCC) at a workshop on Dec. 5 at Scottsbluff, NE.

Climate variability and potential consequences of climate change for agricultural producers in the High Plains region will be discussed at the workshop, which is sponsored by The University of Nebraska Public Policy Center and the Panhandle Research and Extension Center. The workshop will be held in the Bluestem Room of the Panhandle Center from 9 a.m. until noon. Snacks and beverages will be provided.

Register by Nov. 30 by calling the Scotts Bluff County Extension Office at 308-632-1480.

The main objective of the workshop is for producers to become familiar with HPRCC climate tools that will aid in management decisions. These tools cover topics such as planting date, probability of hybrids reaching full maturity before a hard freeze, irrigation scheduling, soil moisture monitoring, and seasonal averages of temperature and precipitation.

There will also be opportunity for discussion about how climate variability has affected ag operations in the past and the potential effects of climate change in the region.

Anonymous pre- and post-surveys on climate change attitudes will be administered before and after the workshop.
