Canadian Agriculture and Climate Change


Item #d98dec46

The Dec. 15 edition of the Edmonton Journal (http://www.edmontonjournal.com/news/alberta/121598ab6.html) reported that research funded by the Nat Christie Foundation, the National Science and Engineering Research Council, and the Alberta Agricultural Research Institute found that climate change might cause spring planting conditions to occur 28 days earlier than normal in parts of southern Alberta and 10 to 20 days earlier farther north. Similar extensions are forecast for the harvesting season. Scientists at the University of Lethbridge and the Lethbridge Research Centre predict that the longer growing season will provide higher yields and new opportunities to plant crops that require hotter weather and longer growing seasons. It will also produce a northward advance of pests that have the potential for causing serious crop damage, especially grasshoppers.
