Program Description

The news is full of information about possible food shortages, issues with access to fertilizers and other food supply concerns. Do we need to add worries about climate change affecting food production to this list? Learn about the Impacts of changing weather on prairie grain production with Professor Paul Bullock. Climate change is much more than a global warming trend. Changes in air temperature and precipitation vary by location and time period. Weather conditions on the prairies are becoming more variable and more extreme with a concurrent impact on grain production. This poses significant challenges for prairie crop growers and adversely impacts the reliability of a major global grain supplier. Schedule: Wednesday, December 7 from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. This class will be held online. A Zoom link will be emailed to you after you register and again 24 hours before the class begins. Presenter Dr. Paul Bullock was a Professor in Soil Science at the University of Manitoba, specializing in Agrometeorology from 2000 until his retirement in December. In the 10 years prior to that he worked at the Canadian Wheat Board during weather and crop surveillance and at Noetix Research working on agricultural applications of remote sensing. He has a wide list of publications under his name and has given many presentations and lectures over this time period.
