Climate change could adversely effect vineyards

Jan 29, 2020 17:14 IST

The looming climate crisis may threaten a range of popular wines, reveals a new study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Since grapes are vulnerable to rising temperatures, with a rise of 2 degree celsius of global warming almost 56% of land used in vineyards would be affected. The authors stated that reshuffling grape varieties and incorporating crop diversity could prevent major losses. For the study, 11 varieties of grapes were studied and climate change projections were analysed.
