This book was developed by an international team of the world’s leading climate and agricultural researchers to provide adaptation strategies for more than 40 field crops such as cereals, legumes, oil-seeds, vegetables, fruit crops, root crops, etc. Special attention has been given to various crops like wheat, rice, maize/corn, chickpea, potatoes, beans, bananas, cassava, grapes, and impact on different continents by 2050—on which billions of people depend worldwide.
