The physical threat of climate change will hit farms hard. The increased likelihood of storms, drought and intense rainfall could physically damage farm soils as well as infrastructure and force management changes. However not only will the physical impacts of climate change effect farms the change in policy towards more climate friendly practices will also change the way farmers farm. Adapting to the whole range of physical and policy changes coming over the next 10-20 years will require a huge shift in how we think about farming in the 21st century.
