Abstract :

Climate change is a significant threat to agriculture, with the accumulation of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere being a major contributor. Since 1900, global temperatures have risen by around 0.99°C, affecting rainfall patterns, increasing the likelihood of disasters, and affecting grain products. Climate change also leads to land degradation, with 500 million hectares of agricultural land abandoned due to desertification and drought. Extreme droughts lower agricultural yields by locking up nutrients and allowing salt to build up in the soil, leading to monetary losses and societal issues.
