Webinar: Climate Change, Water Scarcity, and Adaption in the U.S. Fieldcrop Sector
Despite increased temperatures and much regional variation in production response, U.S. irrigated fieldcrop acreage and water used for irrigation are projected to decline with long-term climate change. Driving the decline in water use are changes in crop growth due to temperature stress, changes in growing-season precipitation, and shifts in surface-water supply availability. In this webinar, ERS Economist Elizabeth Marshall will discuss the regional patterns of change in fieldcrop production and in irrigation under various climate projections covered in her recent report, Climate Change, Water Scarcity, and Adaption in the U.S. Fieldcrop Sector.
