Climate Change results when the Earth’s climate system changes because of new weather patterns. Climate change can cause a severe impact on the sector of agriculture.
Global warming has an impact on agriculture because it causes severe rainfall, cyclones and extend periods of droughts in a country. For example, A part of Australia is a victim of heatwaves and there is a surplus of carbon dioxide in the air, resulting in forest fires and floods. Due to heatwaves, the soil loses its minerals and moisture due to evaporation. It also impacts the photosynthesis process and slow down the growth of plants. This shows that global warming is a fear for enterprise in the agricultural sector.
