BLACKVILLE, S.C. - Clemson University has finally gotten around to rescheduling a workshop that was postponed because of February's ice storm.
University officials are getting a laugh because the workshop is devoted to helping farmers find ways to maximize profit by minimizing the risk from weather.
Clemson irrigation specialist Jose Payero says the underlying lesson of the workshop is that Mother Nature is the most significant factor a farmer can't control.
The "Advanced Farming Technologies for Reducing Climate Risks" workshop is scheduled for Tuesday at Clemson's Edisto Research and Education Center in Blackville.
It will also cover topics like tilling techniques to conserve resources and using sensors and other weather-based tools to monitor crops.
