Scholarcy highlights

  • This chapter focuses on the development of technologies which are in use and being adapted in cropping systems to minimize the negative impact of climate change around the world
  • Insights into agricultural adaptation to climate change come from a variety of research and farm practice approaches under national policy guidance
  • These approaches mainly included: adjusting agricultural structure and layout; changing farm production activities; developing new varieties; developing information systems; and strengthening the agricultural infrastructure. Increasing both crop photosynthetic efficiency and abiotic stress tolerances can help to offset the adverse effect caused by climate change, and could increase grain production through responding to the high CO2 fertilization effect, to ensure food security
