SWROC soil scientist Jeff Strock is a participating researcher in the Climate and Corn-based Cropping Systems CAP (CSCAP) project. The CSCAP is a transdisciplinary partnership among 11 institutions that seeks to increase resilience and adaptability of Midwest agriculture.

The five-year project assesses the environmental, economic and social impacts of long-term climate variability on corn-based cropping systems. The project gathers data from more than 20 field test sites in 8 Midwestern states to focus on ways to promot long-term sustainability and productivity. For more information on CSCAP project, visit
