Peltonen-Sainio, Pirjo and Hakala, Kaija (2008) Climate change and Nordic crop production. In: NJF Report, Nordic Association of Agricultural Scientists, 4 (7), NJF Report, pp. 93-94.
Climate change has evident, large-scale, negative impacts on global food production. Northern hemisphere will not remain unaffected by global warming: generally temperatures are expected to elevate at high latitudes and thus especially in the Nordic countries, even more than elsewhere in Europe or globally. In the northernmost Europe, especially Finland, Norway and Sweden, crop production is practiced at latitudes higher than anywhere else. Consequently, our production
systems will need to be adapted to challenges and opportunities brought by changing climate.
