Climate change impacts on European crop production – new HFFA Research Paper published!
This summer news on extreme weather events is ubiquitous. Central Europe experienced unprecedented dry spells and heat waves leading to stress for humans and also agricultural crops. This raises the important question: What exactly are the climate change impacts on crop production in Europe?
The answer to this question can now be found in our latest research paper: in HFFA Research Paper 01/2019, we explore the climate change impacts on European arable farming that can already be observed today. And we also take a look at impacts that are projected to occur in the future.
The paper was written by a team from HFFA Research and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK): Sophia Lüttringhaus, Steffen Noleppa, Christoph Gornott and Hermann Lotze-Campen.
