Why does agriculture rely so heavily on climate? Is it truly impossible to control the weather? With modern technology, new innovations can help us anticipate and react to crazy climate changes so that we can protect our plants and maximize yield, even in the face of extended rain season and unforeseen weather events.
Climate and meteorology expert Ryne James, a recent NIU Meteorology graduate, has worked with DAAHA to create a virtual exhibit about the relationship between climate and agriculture. Ryne’s exhibit is an extremely informative analysis and explanation of how climate science and agriculture work hand-in-hand. His exhibit looks at the history, present, and future of these innovations, and how they are used to create the best possible yield in all environments.
