Summary

Climate change is assumed to benefit Finnish agriculture by extending the thermal growing season and by milder winters in future. While providing opportunities for Finnish field crop production as new crop species and larger scale use of winter-sown crops, climate change is also amongst the most important global driving forces promoting pest species invasion and establishment into new ranges.
