Global climate change and Indian agriculture: Impacts, adaptation and mitigation

Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change has shown that the earth temperature has increased by 0.74 degree C between 1906 and 2005 due to increase in anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases. It is estimated that crop production loss in India by 2100 AD could be 10-40% despite the beneficial effects of higher CO2 on crop growth. Dynamics of pests and diseases will be significantly altered.
