Towards Sustainable Agricultural Systems : Efforts in Mitigating Climate Change Effects

Rise in temperature has been attributed to the burning of fossil fuels, charcoal, wood fuel, forest fires, garbage, urban wastes, weeds, agricultural residues, etc.  These, in turn, add carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) to the atmosphere. GHGs such as carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane, etc., have heat-trapping ability and the presence of these gases in the atmosphere, beyond certain limits, is one of the primary reasons for the increase in global temperature. The impacts of climate change may vary from place to place—change in the rainfall pattern, heat waves, concurrent droughts, reduction in crop yield, reduction in evapotranspiration, etc. M N Kulkarni tells us about the mitigation and adaptation measures that have been and should be adopted by farmers to cope with climate change in drought-affected parts of Karnataka.
