Study: Nearly Half of Corn, a Third of Rice Vulnerable to Climate Change

As climate change continues to alter our planet, humans will soon be forced to find new ways to feed the growing population.

It’s estimated that the amount of food produced will have to double in order to meet the needs of over nine billion people that could occupy Earth in the next 30 years – but climate change threatens much of the land needed to support these crops.

In a new study, researchers explain which areas are expected to be hit hardest, and reveal the future locations that may become more suitable to host wheat, corn, and rice.
