Climate Change May Have an Effect on Wheat Crops According to UF Researchers
GAINESVILLE,Fla.- Researchers are finding it necessary to adapt to climate changes to keep up with our wheat appetite.
27 wheat crop yield models, were studied to gather that temperature increases were behind discrepancies between growth.
The models show that as the temperature and carbon dioxide levels increase so do the discrepancy between actual and projected yields.
UF Associate Professor Crop Modeling Dr. Senthold Asseng says, “We want to make sure that we understand the challenges, that we can act on that and do something about it and act to make this place a better place to live to supply the food which we will need more of in the future.”
Wheat joins rice and corn as the most widely eaten food worldwide.
