    Webinar #2 of Farming for Success in the 21st Century: Webinar Series for Agriculture Conservation Professionals California Climate & Agriculture Network (CalCAN), with funding from Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) #2: Water Use Efficiency & On-Farm Storage for Climate Resilience Growers can cope with a changing climate and extreme weather events more effectively by employing water stewardship strategies such as increasing water use efficiency, maximizing yields, and reducing soil erosion — all important for enhancing the resilience of farm operations and controlling costs. This webinar will explore practices to help farmers bank more water in soils and catchments and improve water use efficiency on-farm, thereby increasing the water independence and resilience of farming systems when water is scarce and increasingly costly. Speakers: John Green and Brittany Heck, Gold Ridge RCD Kevin Greer, Tehama RCD This three-part webinar series is geared to agricultural conservation professionals such as RCD, Extension and NRCS staff. Each session provides an overview of expected climate impacts such as increased water scarcity, warming temperatures and unpredictable and extreme weather events, and tools for enhancing on-farm resilience and adaptation to changing climate conditions.
