The earth is rapidly changing through processes such as rising [CO2], [O3], and increased food demand. By 2050 the projected atmospheric [CO2] and ground level [O3] will be 50% and 20% higher than today. To meet future agricultural demand, amplified by an increasing population and economic progress in developing countries, crop yields will have to increase by at least 50% by the middle of the century. FACE (Free Air Concentration Enrichment) experiments have been conducted for more than 20… CONTINUE READING
