Future changes in climate will significantly transform US agriculture both through changes in production and the production geography of many crops.Through iterative participatory modeling, this project will generate productions of future production geographies of major crops cultivated in the Central and Eastern US under multiple stakeholder-generated scenarios of climatic and sociotechnical change.
