Changes to the climate have forced farmers across New York state and the Northeast to adapt to extreme weather and new threats to their crops. Cornell’s Climate Smart Farming program (CSF) supports these farmers through the use of advanced digital tools and best management practices. Through these mechanisms, CSF is able help them reduce emissions and boost resilience to extreme weather and climate variability. The end result is an increase in agricultural productivity and farming incomes.
