OSU Climate Change Webinar

Nov 18, 2014, 12:00pm - 1:00pm

The OSU Climate Change webinar will be on Climate Change and corn Belt Agriculture in the Midwest with Richard Moore, OSU Environmental Sciences Network and School of Environment and Natural Resources.

Corn is one of the key world food commodities, just behind rice. With severe weather events associated with climate change forecast to increase in number and intensity, corn crop yields may decrease due to increased nutrient runoff.

This webinar will focus on:

  • climate predictions for the Midwest
  • research findings from the USDA grant "Climate change, mitigation, and adaptation in corn based cropping systems," a $20 million grant focused on ensuring food stability
  •  impacts for Lake Erie
