India: Climate change could affect wheat production - Government report


According to India's recently released second National Communication to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, wheat production may see declining results even with one degree Celsius temperature rise, unless climate change adaptation measures are implemented, reports The Times of India. The report states: "Magnitude of the impact of climate change on wheat production in India assessed through simulation studies indicated that an increase in 1 degree Celsius mean temperature, associated with CO2 increase, would not cause any significant loss to wheat production in India, if simple adaptation strategies such as change in planting date and varieties are used".
