Aug 12 2019
A recent JRC-led article finds that sustainable rice cultivation in the Earth's middle latitudes can be achieved by balancing traditional and dry‐seeding farming methods.
Stunted growth, early leaf senescence and rolled green leaves are clearly visible signs of drought and heat stress in maize crops.

Unless we take action, pristine tropical moist forests more than half the area of the EU will disappear by 2050 – new EU data shows

By 2024 the untouched pristine moist forests in their original condition will disappear from Ivory Coast; by 2040, they will be gone from Madagascar, Angola and India, if the current rates of deforestation and forest degradation are kept, according to a new map by the Joint Research Centre (JRC).

Where possible, farmers in the regions with rain deficit apply irrigation to sustain the crops’ high water demand.
