Future rice yield losses due to climate change could be extreme (ArsTechnica)

Jan 9, 2017

ArsTechnica reported on new research into the physiological mechanisms rice plants use to adjust to changing temperatures and carbon dioxide levels. IFPRI’s models have shown that climate change could reduce rice yield 10 percent by midcentury, dropping 4.2 to 6.4 percent for each change of one Kelvin in temperature.
