Climate change has the potential to adversely impact agricultural productivity at local and regional scales through alterations in rainfall patterns more frequent occurrences of climate extremes including high temperatures or drought altered patterns of pest pressure and changes in seasonal and diurnal temperature patterns nca4 vol 2 ch 10 p 393 nca4 vol 2 ch 21 p 880 . All this month we will be taking a look at what a changing climate means to agriculture the ten regional usda climate hubs were established to synthesize and translate climate science and research into easily understood products and tools that land managers can use to make climate informed decisions the hubs work at the regional level with an extensive network of trusted usda agency partners . One of the most pressing issues facing plant and animal producers today is the ever changing conditions and impacts of climate variability another critical issue is the need for scientific information that producers can use to plan and make decisions to ensure economic viability while facing these challenges nifa supported global change and climate projects are addressing these issues . Climate change has the potential to disrupt usdas efforts to meet the core obligations and responsibilities articulated by its mission and goals the vulnerability of usda operations and programs to climate change will be highly dependent on the variability magnitude and pattern of climate changes as well as on changes in climate extremes
