NYS IPM Climate & Weather Conference: August 15
With all the talk about climate change you might be wondering how it will affect food production, pests, and even landscapes – and what you can do about it. The 2nd Annual IPM Conference can help! Climate, Weather, Data: Protecting Our Crops and Landscapes will be held on August 15, starting at 9:00 AM.
A wide variety of speakers from New York and the Northeast will provide background information on the current state of knowledge on climate change, changes in our weather patterns, and how collecting climate and weather data can help us predict and manage pests. Topics include climate change; agricultural, forest and landscape pests; human health; decision tools; and weather monitoring. Open discussion sessions are included so you can ask your own questions.
The final agenda is now available! The program will run from 9:00-4:15 and costs $45 – which includes lunch, breaks and materials. Conference information can be found here and registration information can be found at the Climate, Weather, Data website.
