Effects of climate change likely already being felt in global food production

· June 3, 2019

There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to crop production and farming success, especially when the climate and individual weather events are involved. So it’s with great interest that the University of Minnesota, in partnership with researchers from the University of Oxford and the University of Copenhagen, used weather and reported crop data to evaluate […]

University of Illinois tool predicts climate change on crop yields

· January 3, 2018

University of Illinois scientists now have a new tool to predict the future effects of climate change on crop yields. Researchers are attempting to bridge two types of computational crop models to become more reliable predictors of crop production in the U.S. Corn Belt. “One class of crop models is agronomy-based and the other is […]
