Farmers, how have changes in your local climate affected your agricultural business?

The PBS NewsHour wants to hear from farmers: What have these changes in weather patterns meant for your crops? How have these changes affected your farm or agricultural business? Have warmer winters brought new plants, pests or diseases? How did you adjust to a late freeze or an early spring? Have you had more losses in recent years?
The NewsHour has partnered with Harvest Public Media using the Public Insight Network to broaden our storytelling perspective. We want to put names and faces to current events. We want to know if you've made changes to adapt to a shift in weather patterns.
