A new plan to help farmers deal with climate change
The nation’s top agriculture official will be in East Lansing later today to unveil a new plan for dealing with climate change.
U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will be on the Michigan State University campus.
He’s in Michigan to announce a comprehensive national strategy to partner with farmers, ranchers and forest land owners to address the threat of climate change.
The plan is a combination of voluntary and incentive-based programs.
Vilsack has said farmers are being affected now by climate change in the form of intense storms and extreme droughts.
