By David I. Gustafson, Adjunct Research Faculty at Washington State University

This article is part of a series, Climate Friendly Fruit & Veggies, highlighting work from the Fruit & Vegetable Supply Chains: Climate Adaptation & Mitigation Opportunities (F&V CAMO) project, a collaborative research study This project seeks to identify and test climate adaptation and mitigation strategies in fruit and vegetable supply chains.

The article discusses climate analogs, which are places that are experiencing now climatic conditions that resemble what we can expect here in the future. The authors are using these analogs to identify and pair up Extension specialists from the “climate here” and “climate now” counties, to spark creative thinking around specialty crop management, to help more effectively plan for the future in target counties.
