REACCH region

Cereal agriculture production in the inland Pacific Northwest USA contributes to local communities and global food supply.

An interdisciplinary team of scientists and professionals initiated the 5-year REACCH project in 2011 with funding from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s Climate Variability and Change Program to ensure sustainable cereal production in the inland Pacific Northwest under the risks of regional climate change.

Participants from many disciplines related to agricultural, climate, social and information sciences are engaged in a thoroughly integrated research effort that addresses the complexity of these systems and their responses to drivers of change. In addition to research, the project has significant education and extension components.
