Climate change affects agricultural production

The World Wide Fund for Nature says farmers are having a difficult time producing standard agricultural crops due to the effects of climate change.
WWF Pacific Project Manager, Vinesh Kumar says most of these farmers depend on crops for food and income but the recent unexpected weather patterns have added to their struggles.
“During our meeting with the farmers, they are raising that the decline in production and productivity leads to a decline in their income so basically, it’s a major concern. We are trying to help develop their farm budget and plans and how they’re going to combat this climate aspect.”
Meanwhile, American Environmentalist, Miriam Horn says there is some evidence that climate change is already having a measurable effect on the quality and quantity of food produced around the globe.
