Rising carbon dioxide levels should increase crop yields. But what if their effect on the nutritional value of our food is less benign, asks Ned Stafford. 
Targets for Crop Biotechnology in a Future High-CO2 and High-O3 World1
Though world food supply has more than kept pace with demand, there are over 850 million malnourished people in the world, the vast majority in Asia.
Effect of Elevated Levels of Carbon Dioxide on the Activity of RuBisCO and Crop Productivity
Atmospheric CO2 concentration is now higher than it was at any time in the past 26 million years and is expected to nearly double during this century. This trend is of concern to agriculture because
A Review on: Effect of Tillage and Crop Residue on Soil Carbon and Carbon Dioxide Emission
Agricultural soils can act as sources and sinks for CO 2 and other greenhouse gases. Whether soils act as a sink or source depends upon the management of the soil. The fluxes of CO 2 between the

Climatic Warming Increases Winter Wheat Yield but Reduces Grain Nitrogen Concentration in East China
Climatic warming is often predicted to reduce wheat yield and grain quality in China. However, direct evidence is still lacking. We conducted a three-year experiment with a Free Air Temperature
