Climate Change, Drought and Agriculture Podcast

Wheat field and sky
Hot temperatures in combination with reduced annual precipitation cause drought stress during the growing season that can impact many important crops in the PNW.

As part of her summer internship with the REACCH project at Oregon State University, Savannah Kisling developed an informative podcast about climate change, drought and their impacts on agriculture. For her project Savannah interviewed Dr. John Abatzoglou, Climate Scientist from the University of Idaho who discusses what it means to have a drought and Dr. Kristy Borrelli, REACCH Extension Specialist who discusses what drought means for regional producers, and some approaches they can take to lessen its negative impacts.


Kristy Borrelli is a REACCH Extension Specialist at University of Idaho and a member of the Agriculture Climate Network team.
