Global atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO{sub 2}) concentrations are continuing to increase and will probably double during the next century. The effects of such an increase are of global concern. Carbon dioxide-induced climate changes may result in reduced precipitation in major agricultural areas. The potential therefore exists for severe CO{sub 2}-induced water-stress effects on agriculture. This set of studies determined the effects of long-term elevated atmospheric CO{sub 2} concentrations and… CONTINUE READING
