NASA research found that climate change will affect the global supply of corn and wheat as early as 2030
New Delhi.Due to climate change, global crop supply faces a severe future. New NASA research shows that by the end of this century, the supply of corn, wheat, soybeans and rice is expected to be very different-the world will begin to feel its effects as early as 2030. The research, published in the journal Nature Food on Monday, uses advanced climate and agricultural models to analyze the future of global food production.
They found that in the next ten years, projected temperature increases, changes in rainfall patterns, and increases in surface carbon dioxide concentrations will change agriculture around the world. “Due to climate change, major changes in global crop productivity are expected to occur within the next 20 years [years],” the study said, “decades ahead of estimates based on previous projects.”
