Authors - Laura Lengnick
Publisher - New Society Publishers

New Society Publishers says, "Climate change presents an unprecedented challenge to the productivity and profitability of agriculture in North America. Drought and flooding rains create the most obvious damage, but hot summer nights, warmer winters, changing pest pressures, and other changes have more subtle but far-reaching effects on the production of crops and livestock.

This updated second edition of Resilient Agriculture takes you beyond the headlines and the hype to examine the complexities of climate change, resilience, and the future of food through the adaptation stories of some of North America's best sustainable farmers and ranchers."
