Cambio climático preocupa a productores en California
FARMERS in California are worried about the effects of global warming on their crops. Contra Costa Times reports that if temperatures continue their apparent upward trend, there will be too few cold units in winter and trees will struggle to bear fruit.
This is a particular risk for stone fruit such as peaches and apricots. Other concerns raised at an event last week are that hotter summers would cause wilting and dryness, and that weeds and pests currently only found further north could move south and damage crops.
