This report presents the results of a survey conducted in 2017-2018 with fruit and vegetable growers across the Northeastern US. The survey asked growers about how they are changing management on their farms to account for the increased incidence of drought and heavy precipitation events. Our analysis in the report links these adaptations to site and soil characteristics. The survey report also includes information about the climate impacts growers are most concerned about, information sources that farmers look to for new ideas, and the resources and support they need to adapt to a changing world.
