A changing climate due to increasing anthopogenic emissions of greenhouse gases will induce change in agricultural systems through a set of interactive processes. Both productivity and geographic distribution of crop species will be affected. The major climate factors contributing to these responses includes increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide, rising temperature, and increasing extreme events, especially droughts and floods. These factors in turn will affect water resources for agriculture, grazing lands, livestock, and associated agricutural pests. Effects will vary, depending on the degree of change in temperature and precipitation and on the particular management system and its location. Several studies have suggested that recent warming trends in some regions may have already had discernible effcts on some agricultural systems.
