  • This project is funded by a competitive grant from the USDA-National Institute of Food and Agriculture. The overall focus is on adaptation to climate change at the Cornbelt's northwest edge, in the eastern and central regions of the Dakotas. The ultimate goal of this research is to develop an integrated framework for understanding agroecosystem adaptation to climate change in a production system transition zone, and for appropriate policy formation to help agricultural adjustments.
