Crop Resilience Needs Speed, Accuracy and Better Mitigation
Feeding a growing global population as our climate warms will be one of the biggest challenges that we face during this century.
Introducing new crop varieties that thrive in warmer conditions can help farmers make their crops more resilient. But our new study suggests the climate is changing faster than new crops are being developed.
Using maize crops in Africa as a case study, we look at three ways to help crop yields keep pace with rising temperatures, protecting food production in the future.
