The Dashboard for Agricultural Water Use and Nutrient Management Project (DAWN) Extension team is developing a "forecasting and risk analysis system to provide farmers and water managers across the Corn Belt with the most relevant and reliable information for farm-level decision-making." The Extension team advises DAWN's data support, educational programs, and stakeholder engagement. MCAP is helping the project team to identify, categorize, and summarize stakeholder science needs for agriculture forecasts in a changing climate.
Through literature review and document analysis we helped to summarize stakeholder science needs with the goal of improving the usability of the DAWN dashboard while also working to identify stakeholder perspectives that have already been shared across the project region in an effort to reduce stakeholder fatigue.
