UMaine wants farmers to think about growing in new weather

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — The University of Maine is inviting people who grow food for a living to a discussion of how changing weather patterns will impact their livelihoods.

The university says it’s hosting a panel discussion about “farming in a new weather reality” on Jan. 9 during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show. It will open with a panel of Maine crop and livestock farmers discussing how changes in the weather have affected their operations, and how they have adjusted.

University of Maine School of Food and Agriculture association professor Ellen Mallory will moderate the session. UMaine Climate and Agriculture Network and Maine Sustainable Agriculture Society are sponsoring the event, which is scheduled to take place at the Augusta Civic Center.
