Eric Snodgrass, Atmospheric Scientist Hosts Climate Change Webinar
An hour-long presentation held virtually showed audience members the climate patterns taking place not only in the Midwest but also throughout the world.
Eric Snodgrass is the Principal Atmospheric Scientist at Nutrien Ag Solutions which is the world’s largest supplier of crop inputs and services.
It’s time to go beyond your typical weather forecast and peer into the future of climate variability as it relates to farming in Illinois. Continued heavy and erratic rainfall, shorter windows to put a crop in, and an overall longer growing season are what could become a reality. Snodgrass walks through not only the science but practical implications of climate change. Managing water, increasing infiltration rates, minimizing nutrient loss, and capital investment changes are all addressed and will be dug into deeper in the coming weeks. This must watch video is the first of a bigger series looking into how to make sure Illinois farmers are best prepared to adapt to climate change.
Snodgrass presents in a way that is true to scientific nature but also easy for someone without prior background to understand, making the webinar easy to follow and enjoyable.
