Climate Change to Put UK’s Farming, Dairy Sector under Massive Stress

The UK’s two important farming sectors, dairy and potato growing, will be badly hit by climate change over the next 30 to 50 years, the country’s national weather service the Met Office has warned in a study. The research found that heat stress in dairy cattle is projected to increase significantly in key dairy regions of the UK, particularly in south western England. Heat stress conditions are met around two-to-three days per year, but in the period 2051–2070, this could extend to around one month per year on average, said the study. Published in the Climate Risk Management journal, the study also covered the impacts on the potato sector due to late blight, a disease affecting potato crops which occurs in warm, humid weather.
