Purdue University faculty and staff members of a multi-university initiative to make global climate information of better use in farming will receive the College of Agriculture's 2015 TEAM award. TEAM, an acronym for Together Everyone Achieves More, is given annually to a Purdue team of professionals for their interdisciplinary achievements. This year's honorees are the Purdue members of Useful to Usable, or U2U as it is called, a climate research and education project based at Purdue.
As Indiana frees itself from the grip of a harsh late winter, the State Climate Office says a developing weather pattern is likely to produce variable conditions this spring.
The Useful to Usable climate initiative based at Purdue University has added an online tool enabling farmers and agricultural advisers to better assess how climate patterns in other parts of the world can influence local conditions and corn yields across the Corn Belt.
Purdue Extension is helping to provide training in January so that Indiana communities can organize to better prepare for and recover from disasters.
