Registered author(s):

    As droughts become more severe and frequent with changing climate, farmers of the Southern High Plains (SHP) of Texas may be forced to adopt new agricultural practices which will enable them to adapt to severe climate conditions. During 2011, scorching temperatures coupled with record low precipitation resulted in catastrophic drought conditions in the SHP. An analysis of the impact of the 2011 drought on producers in the TAWC demonstration sites has shown that producers made in-season crop management decisions to mitigate the effects of drought, which also impacted their 2012 crop mixes.
