Adoption of low carbon agriculture techniques

The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) is studying the impact of global warming on agriculture since 2004. Research studies indicate more erratic and intense monsoon rains/unseasonal rains and hailstorm, increasing risk of droughts and floods and rise in temperature including increased frequency of warm days. This leads to projected average reduction of yield by […]

Global Warming and Indian Monsoon

It has been observed since 1979 that there is a heterogeneous increase in the tropospheric temperature across the globe. The rise in tropospheric temperature over selected climatic zones during the period 1949-1978 is as follows – the equator +0.45°C, the north polar +0.60°C, the north subtropic +0.32°C, the south subtropic +0.77°C and the south polar […]
