Renewable Sources of Biomass Increase the Availability of Renewable Fuels and Biobased Products
Renewable sources of biomass increase the availability of renewable fuels and biobased products to help replace the need for gasoline and diesel in vehicles, and diversify our nation’s energy portfolio. NIFA originally published this impact in the 2015 Annual Report.
Agriculture Economics and Rural Communities
Researchers at the University of Connecticut are studying the impact of changing climatic conditions on dairy farm productivity in Wisconsin. NIFA originally published this impact in the 2015 Annual Report.
Reducing Greenhouse Gas - One Cow at a Time
A five-year, NIFA-funded Dairy CAP is putting the U.S. dairy industry on target to reduce its Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 25 percent by 2020. NIFA originally published this impact in the in the NIFA 2016 Annual Report.
Putting the 'WOW' into Weather Variability Research
The “G-WOW” Changing Climate, Changing Culture initiative from University of Wisconsin Extension, Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission, National Park Service, and U.S. Forest Service changed the way educators talk about climate variability by creating a model that integrates culturally-relevant evidence of climate variability with climate science.
Map Identifies, Targets Problem Locations
NIFA’s support of the National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NAPD) helps track how airborne nitrogen is deposited in the United States and how it affects the environment.
Highly Productive Corn has Reduced Ability to Adapt
Does acclimating to particular locations change a plant’s ability to adapt to new or stressful environments? NIFA originally published this impact in the 2017 NIFA Annual Report.
Creating a Glimpse into the Future
University of Maryland researchers used Earth System Modeling to simulate the impacts of decadal climate variability on water and agriculture in the Missouri River Basin. NIFA originally published this impact in the NIFA 2017 Annual Report.
Online Tool Helps Producers Make Better Long-Term Decisions
Purdue University, Indiana, led a team of researchers, that included University of Wisconsin Extension, in an effort to create decision support tools and resources that will enhance farm resilience to a variable and changing climate. NIFA originally published this impact in the NIFA 2017 Annual Report.
