Climate Change Adaptation: Snowfall & Extreme Cold Weather

Sub-zero temperatures and snowfall conditions can cause damage to infrastructure, crops and livestock. While climate projections indicate that much of Scotland will see a reduction in the occurrence of frost and snowfall over the next century, cold weather and snowfall events will continue to be issues that farmers will need to deal with from time to time. It is important that farm businesses actively consider climate change adaptation to minimise potential risks and where possible benefit from any opportunities that may present themselves.
