The Effects of Climate Change on Agriculture

Categories

Climate change is becoming a global phenomenon which is likely to lead to increasing precipitation at the same time leading to less rainfall. Climate change affects weather, and in the long run affecting Agriculture in many ways. It leads to extreme weather, increased evaporation, and destabilization of local climates and resultant economic costs which may be associated with weather changes.

The World Meteorological Organization has suggested a possible link between global warming and increasing extreme weather events, like increasing temperatures However, the evidence is clear that severe weather and rainfall are also increasing.

In the past, most areas had a drought about every given period and farmers were aware of the dry and wet periods hence would prepare adequately. Now it is no longer predictable since they don’t know when rain or dry periods will come, they can’t prepare in advance. This has led to food shortage in many parts of thClimate change is becoming a global phenomenon which is likely to lead to increasing precipitation at the same time leading to less rainfall.

Now it is no longer predictable since they don’t know when rain or dry periods will come, they can’t prepare in advance. This has led to food shortage in many parts of the world. The land is available and some time even rain is available but farmers are simply not ready since the climate is far less predictable.

Upland areas, which were never affected by mosquitoes, are now the most vulnerable, some even experiencing drought. Water levels are decreasing even in swamps.

The hurricanes in many parts are a direct result of climate change. The former cold areas are becoming warmer and warmer.

If global warming continues, heavier rainfall and more erosion will continue affecting many areas.
Agriculture is affected by changing weather patterns, leading to destruction of crops, there by affecting agricultural yields.

Some time if the temperature and precipitation are in extreme, they can prevent crops from growing and reduce crop yields leading to losses.
Many weeds, pests and fungi survive under warmer temperatures, wetter climates, and increased carbon dioxide levels. Currently, farmers spend lots of money to control weeds in formerly colder areas.
