Building Agricultural Resilience to Hurricanes: Before, During, and After

November 15 @ 7:30 am - 4:00 pm

 

Registration Deadline: October 26, 2018. 

Contact: Carolyn Cox. (352) 392-1864 ext. 255. crcox@ufl.edu

Agenda: The workshop will focus on adaptation practices that increase resilience to hurricanes in nurseries, horticulture, row crop, livestock, and grazing lands. Workshop participants will learn about hurricane impacts on the different commodities and management practices to reduce risk. Participants will also have an opportunity to share their own experiences and lessons learned from previous hurricanes during organized group discussions.  Products from the workshop will include: (1) a report summarizing successful management practices that increase resiliency to hurricanes before, during and after an event, (2) a technical manual to assist the transfer of information learned during the workshop from extension agents to producers, and (3) a report or peer-reviewed publication based on the group discussions.
