Climate change and crop production.

Book cover for Climate change and crop production.


This book comprehensively addresses the impact of climate change on crop productivity and approaches to adapt to both biotic and abiotic stresses as well as approaches to reduce greenhouse gases. The predictions of climate change and its impact on crop productivity, adaptation to biotic and abiotic stresses through crop breeding, sustainable and resource-conserving technologies for adaptation to and mitigation of climate change and new tools for enhancing crop adaptation to climate change are also discussed.
