Climate change has an undeniable effect on agriculture. Learn about research on Plains and Corn Belt climate issues, outlooks, climate change and other current climate and weather issues for agriculture and water. Plus see USDA information on climate and crop yield interactions as impacted by climate variations and trends, and tools for measurement.
Dennis Todey, former climatologist and professor at South Dakota State University, currently directs the activities of the USDA Midwest Climate Hub to develop and deliver climate and agriculture information. His research focuses on Plains and Corn Belt climate and weather issues related to agriculture and water resources.
