Agriculture in a changing climate

Global climate change is forecast to cause major shifts in the general circulation of the atmosphere, which will lead to variations in the length of the growing season and the alteration of precipitation patterns. These changes will, in turn, affect agricultural production. These projected agricultural shifts will affect not only the livelihood of farmers but the infrastructure and other support services as well. This research examines the impact of climate change on agriculture and suggests possible adaptation and mitigation strategies.
