Climate Change and Agricultural Commodities
This paper reviews climate change before considering the impact of climate change on agricultural production
Climate is central to agricultural production: it follows that as climatic parameters change, then so will agriculture. This paper reviews climate change before considering the impact of climate change on some aspects of agricultural production. Focus case studies provide additional analysis and synthesis for the main agricultural commodities within CABI Member Countries, India and Ghana (particularly cocoa); other specific commodities include cotton (with a focus on Pakistan) and coffee. The final analysis identifies knowledge gaps.
