A content analysis of agricultural trade publications was conducted to document how the media discussed and portrayed the 2012 summer drought and whether climate change was included within this discussion. The overall population of articles were sampled from ten specific agricultural trade publications from April 2, 2012 through March 31, 2014 that included the keyword "drought” within the article. We retrieved 2,818 articles and sampled 1,029 of these for coding and analysis.
