Fred Yoder has plenty of personal experience with roller-coaster weather. But he also has a broader perspective on the impact extreme weather has had on agriculture.

Yoder chaired a committee of farmers, ranchers and other agricultural experts who guided a special project to recommend ways that agriculture and forestry can adapt to extreme weather.

The project, spearheaded by the 25X’25 Alliance, a coalition of agriculture, conservation and business groups, outlined challenges ahead, and how to improve the viability of agriculture and forestry operations despite challenging weather. Alliance partners include the National Corn Growers Association, the American Soybean Association, the American Farm Bureau Federation and dozens of other farm and conservation groups and business, is at www.25x25.org under Projects.
