Morning Sentinel covers panel discussion on farming in changing weather
Morning Sentinel reported on a panel discussion at the Maine Agricultural Trades Show that focused on farming in a new weather reality. Five Maine farmers spoke about how changing weather patterns have prompted them to adapt their farming strategies, according to the article. The forum was organized by the Maine Climate and Agriculture Network and moderated by Ellen Mallory, a University of Maine associate professor and UMaine Cooperative Extension sustainable agriculture specialist. Mallory said the network’s goal was to bring together individuals who already are working on weather issues and coordinate their efforts. “The focus is on what we in agriculture are experiencing, how we’re making changes to adapt, and what resources we may need,” she said.
