Description

This research measured the economic effects of climate-related yield change in California crops. Agricultural yields may be adversely affected by climate warming, resulting in increased production costs per unit. These effects may be partially offset by higher crop prices if_x000B_California can maintain its position as the dominant supplier. Yield reductions vary by crop_x000B_and region, but initial results show significant revenue losses for farming activity in California. This is a state-funded research study sponsored by the California Energy Commission, CAT, and CDFA.
