Field Crops

Field crops include corn, cotton, rice, sorghum, soybeans, winter wheat, durum wheat, and spring wheat. The effects of climate change on crop production will vary by region, and will largely be a factor of impacts on resources important to agricultural production, such as soil and water. Conservation tillage, crop residue management, and cover crops are examples of management practices that can help mitigate the negative impacts of climate change.
