Impact On Agriculture

Agricultural productivity in the United States is based on the temperate climate and rich soils. Global warming exhibits direct and indirect geographical effects on agricultural productivity. Direct effects occur through changes in the length of the growing season, the frequency of heat waves, and altered patterns of rainfall; while indirect effects result from changes in topsoil management practices. Dryland yields of corn, wheat, and soybeans could decrease in many regions as a result of higher temperatures
