The alliance, according to its website, works “to create opportunities across the agricultural supply chain for continuous improvements in productivity, environmental quality and human well-being.”* Ernie Shea, president and CEO of Lutherville, Maryland-based Solutions from the Land and coordinator of its North American Climate Smart Agriculture Alliance. The alliance is helping farmers and foresters understand and adapt to climate change while maintaining their productivity.Moderating the discussion will be Fred Yoder, a corn, wheat and soybean farmer from Madison County, Ohio, and a past president of the National Corn Growers Association. In 2013, President Obama honored Yoder as a “Champion for Change” for his sustainability and climate change work.“Agricultural producers, other landowners and our broader society face enormous challenges and opportunities locally, nationally and globally,” Hanselmann said. “With little exaggeration, life itself hinges on our success in these matters.”Registration for the event is $10 and includes breakfast. The deadline to register is Jan. 22.
