Future crops and climate change
How can we grow more food and crops using less space, while adapting to future climate change?
Climate change has many adverse effects on agriculture, but will also bring opportunities to grow new, or currently marginal, crops where the conditions are best suited for their cultivation.
Fine-scale climate modelling and crop growth models are used to estimate yields under present and future climate conditions.
