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 19 (Page no: 407)

Crop breeding strategies for the 21st century.

This chapter focuses on crop breeding strategies needed to solve some problems and exploit some opportunities that may result from global climatic change. The topics discussed include plant responses to atmospheric carbon dioxide and temperature; interactive effects of carbon dioxide increase and global warming in plants; crop water relations and global climatic change; pest relations of plants and global climatic change; and grain quality and global climatic change.
