The impact of climate change on the development of agricultural production


  • L. Udova, K. Prokopenko, L. Didkovska


The article outlines some special features of climate change manifested in the growth of average temperature, increased level of the oceans and a growing number of natural disasters (droughts, desertification, etc.) The authors characterize a series of sources increasing the volume of the emission of greenhouse gases, which is the main cause of global warming. It is argues that agriculture is both a powerful source and a biological trap of greenhouse gases. The authors reveal some changes in the territorial distribution of individual key crops (sunflower, corn and sugar beet) in four climatic zones, as well as a gradual replacement of sown areas under those crops to the North and West zones. The tendency will probably hold as the yields in this area appear to be much higher due to more favorable cultivation conditions, which is in turn caused by climate change.
