Agriculture and Food Research Initiative - Resilient Agroecosystems in a Changing Climate Challenge Area

The AFRI Resilient Agroecosystems in a Changing Climate Challenge Area supports activities that enable the nation's agriculture and forest lands to adapt to current and future climate conditions (including increased droughts and other extreme events), maintain or increase production, efficiently

credit:


use soil and water resources, and improve soil, water and air conditions.

Land managers are experiencing more variable weather patterns, especially with regard to water issues such as more intense patterns of droughts and floods, and the lengthening of the growing season over the last three decades.

Research results from this challenge area will lead to improved management systems and crop varieties that consider the risks associated with a more variable environment.

Another long-term outcome of this challenge area is reducing the environmental impact while maintaining a productive food, feed, fiber, and fuel system.
