Understanding Climate Change Impact on Crop Productivity and Water covers topics on emission of greenhouse gases and their warming effect, climate change projections and crop productivity and water. The book begins with an overview of the cycles of the most important greenhouse gases that influence the climate system and the different mechanisms involved. Readers are then made familiar with technical terms from climate projections. Mechanisms and projections are then put together to present to possible impacts on crop productivity and water balance. Finally, based on the impacts’ results, some adaptive and mitigative strategies are proposed to cope with the negative effects due to climate change in those particular domains. This book will be of great interest to researchers interested in climate change impact on atmosphere, soil and plants.

Key Features

  • Uncovers links between climate change and its impact on crop and water outputs
  • Integrates information on greenhouse gases cycles and mathematical equations into climate/crop models for analysis and seasonal prediction systems
  • Provides strategies for efficient resource management and sustainable crop production in future
