How is Climate Change in Minnesota Affecting the Sustainability of Corn Production?

University of Minnesota/Tim Griffis

The goal of this project is to develop a state-of-the-art large mesocosm facility to examine how climate change will impact agricultural productivity and other environmental impacts in Minnesota. The results will provide important knowledge to Minnesota corn growers with respect to climate change adaptation. Better understanding of how current cultivars respond to changing climate will help with developing an integrated climate change adaptation plan and guide future research efforts.
