Farming becoming riskier under climate change — ScienceDaily

Climate change is predicted to impact agriculture, but a new study puts these changes in terms that are directly applicable to farmers.

Each planting window carries increased risk — the early planting window could be thwarted by frost or heavy precipitation, and the late window cut short by intense late-summer drought.
