Featured Expert : Rachel Suits, OSU
The pace and intensity of climate change has created hardship for farmers because of drought, fires and floods, affecting crop viability and economic success for small-scale, diversified farmers. There are both federal and state level loan forgiveness and grant programs available for farmers affected by climate change.
