For the past two years, Georgia agricultural climatologist Pam Knox has kept Georgians up to date on the way the state’s climate impacts the state’s largest industry.
Starting in April, she started providing daily updates on climate and agriculture on her new blog “On the CASE (Climate and Agriculture in the Southeast)”.
The blog, which can be found at blog.extension.uga.edu/climate/, features her monthly climate reports, climate and weather news from around the country, resources for farmers coping with extreme weather and crop updates.
She is also hoping to share the stories of producers around Georgia and the Southeast who are being impacted by remarkable weather or climatic conditions.
Please feel free to email her notes or photos about weather and climate across the Southeast impacting your farm or garden at firstname.lastname@example.org.
