CABI Book Chapter

Climate change and global crop productivity.

Book cover for Climate change and global crop productivity.

Description

Following an overview of climate change and global crop productivity, the book is divided into 4 sections: the problem-changing biosphere (climatic change and variability, and agricultural contributions to greenhouse gas emissions); crop ecosystem responses to climatic change (rice, maize and sorghum, soyabean, cotton, root and tuberous crops, vegetable crops, tree crops, productive grasslands, ra...

Chapter 5 (Page no: 81)

Crop ecosystem responses to climatic change: rice.

This chapter summarizes the recent research findings on the effects of carbon dioxide, air temperature and other environmental variables on rice growth, developmental processes (photosynthesis) and yield.
