Climate Change and Agriculture: A Review Article with Special Reference to India
This paper provides an overview of climate change and agriculture, while paying some specific attention to the impact of climate change on Indian agriculture. This broad-brush account covers both the agronomic and economic aspects of the impact of climate change, as well as a critique of the methodologies used to estimate them. The paper ends with some comments on Indian agricultural policy in the era of climate change. An extended annotated bibliography provides a compendium of the likely impact of climate change on the yield and productivity of several major crops in India; on water-related parameters such as evaporation, water runoff and soil moisture; and on soil productivity, pests and crop diseases.
