Chatrchyan, director of the new Cornell University Institute for Climate Change and Agriculture, and WHEC News10NBC Meteorologist Josh Nichols, who also teaches weather and climate at Monroe Community College.
 


On Tuesday, August 5 at 10:30am, Dr. Chatrchyan will speak on Farming in a More Extreme and Variable Climate.
 
On Wednesday, August 6 at 10:30am, Nichols will present Weather from the Farmers’ Point of View.
 
Admission to Empire Farm Days and the weather presentations is free, parking is $10. The event is held on 300 acres of the Rodman Lott and Son Farms in Seneca Falls, NY. Learn more at www.empirefarmdays.com.
