Over the past few decades, it has become obvious that climate change, and consequent extreme weather events, can wreak havoc on crop yields. Concerningly, there is a large disparity in agricultural vulnerability between developed and developing countries. In a new study, researchers have looked at major food grains in India to understand the long- and short-term effects of climate change on crop yields.
Through the innovative Global Food Security Interns program, selected undergraduates in the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES) have the opportunity to work with faculty mentors on specific projects towards global food and nutrition security in low- and middle-income countries.
