One of the major challenges of climate change is to use climate models to help us predict the effect on food crops in the future. We need to assess how changes in temperature and rainfall will affect the productivity of our food crops. We also need to consider how the variability of climate will alter, and look at how we can forecast this. How can agriculture adapt to offset the negative effects of climate change, and make the most of any opportunities which might occur?
