Local farmers are beginning to prepare for the growing season. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Climate Change has the potential to impact Agricultural Productivity. One local farmer gives us his insight into the changing climate.
Ed Shew is a local farmer from Clinton Indiana. He has worked as a full-time farmer for more than 40 years. He says every season is different.
"For me, it is just a natural course of events because every year the climate is different than what it was last year,” Shew said.
One local expert at the Environmental Resilience Institute at Indiana University says everyone has his or her own opinion. But what matters most is learning to adapt no matter the changes.
