Heat Stress in Crops: Driver of Climate Change Impacting Global Food Supply

  • Richa Rai


Climate change may cause hindrance in progress toward a vision of world without hunger. Anthropogenic activities have increased emissions of greenhouse gases with subsequent changes in temperature, rainfall patterns, and perhaps severity of extreme weather. Agriculture is inherently sensitive to climate variability. The most remarkable driver of climate change affecting agriculture is the increase of global temperature. Increase of global temperature may have a significant influence on agricultural productivity along with other consequences related to severity of the high temperature such as drought and salinity.

The present chapter highlights factor responsible for rise in temperature and its role in enhancing frequency of drought and salinity episodes which also affects agricultural production and response of increased temperature on crop’s phenology, physiology, and productivity.
