Transforming Climate Variability and
Change Information for Cereal Crop Producers
Useful to Usable (U2U): Transforming Climate Variability and Change Information for Cereal Crop Producers was a USDA-NIFA funded research and extension project focused on improving the usability of climate information for agricultural production in the Midwestern United States. A diverse team of biophysical and social scientists from nine Midwestern universities spent six years working with the agricultural community to develop climate-based decision support tools and resources to enhance farm resilience to a variable and changing climate.
This project was active from April 15, 2011 – April 14, 2017 and has now concluded. This legacy website continues to provide access to U2U project materials and resources. In the coming weeks the U2U Decision Support Tools will be migrated to the High Plains Regional Climate Center (HPRCC) and Midwestern Regional Climate Center (MRCC) to ensure ongoing access.
