Abstract:

Managing through uncertainty & challenging weather is a common element of farming life and producers have developed many ways of adapting. However, the scope and scale of climate change is anticipated to exceed anything previously experienced. Patterns of "normal" weather will shift and the frequency of unpredictable and extreme weather events will increase. This will test the capacity of individual agricultural producers to respond through current approaches, practices and technologies. This project was initiated, in part, to provide a baseline assessment of potential impacts of climate change for BC agriculture. Although agriculture-focused research has been conducted for the Okanagan, information on the implications of climate change for agriculture in BC as a whole, and for most regions and commodities, is very limited.
