Permalink University of California Study Says Climate Change Threatens State's Major Crops

Researchers from the University of California published a report in Agronomy that predicts the state's climate will no longer be able to support its current major crops by the end of the century, according to KQED. The study looked at climate trends and examined what effect record low snowpack and extreme drought would have on crop yields. The researchers found that if California could no longer support production of fruits and nuts, this could threaten national food security, because the state furnishes nearly 67% of the nation's total value of these products. In particular, climate change could threaten almonds, wine grapes, table grapes, strawberries, hay, walnuts, freestone peaches, and cherries.
