Climate crisis: Rice yields experience larger declines in extreme weather conditions in India – Countercurrents
In India, the yields from grains such as millet, sorghum, and maize are more resilient to extreme weather; their yields vary significantly less due to year-to-year changes in climate and generally experience smaller declines during droughts; but yields from rice experience larger declines during extreme weather conditions, finds a new study. In a paper – “Sensitivity of grain yields to[Read More...]
