Rice is arguably the most important food source on the planet and is consumed by over half of the world's population. Considerable increases in yield are required over this century to continue feeding the world's growing population. This meta‐analysis synthesizes the research to date on rice responses to two elements of global change, rising atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration ([CO2]) and rising tropospheric ozone concentration ([O3]). On an average, elevated [CO2] (627 ppm) increased rice… 

Direct Effects of Rising Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide and Ozone on Crop Yields

Rising atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration ([CO2]) in this century will alter crop yield quantity and quality. It is important to understand the magnitude of the expected changes and the

Response of rice production to elevated [CO2] and its interaction with rising temperature or nitrogen supply: a meta-analysis

We used meta-analysis to synthesize 125 studies assessing the responses of rice production to elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration ([CO2]), and the interaction of elevated [CO2] with

Future of Rice Crop Under Enriched CO 2 Environment

Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is the second largest cereal crop produced globally, with a worldwide production of about 720 million metric tons in recent years and contributing toward for 20% of the global

Impacts of elevated CO2 concentration on the productivity and surface energy budget of the soybean and maize agroecosystem in the Midwest USA

Simulations of the Agro-IBIS dynamic global vegetation model with observations from the SoyFACE experiment to simulate the response of soybean and maize to an increase in [CO2] resulted in decreased latent heat flux and increased sensible heat flux from both crops when averaged over 30 years.

Rice Responses and Tolerance to Elevated Ozone

Elevated atmospheric CO2 concentration increases rice blast severity

Understanding and predicting the climate-driven changes in the agroecosystem may allow the development of adaptation strategies in order to minimize crop losses.

Rice grain yield and quality responses to free‐air CO2 enrichment combined with soil and water warming

Year-to-year variation in the response of grain appearance quality demonstrated that E-[CO2 ] and rising air temperatures synergistically reducegrain appearance quality of rice.



Rice yield enhancement by elevated CO2 is reduced in cool weather

The projected increase of atmospheric CO2 concentration ([CO2]) is expected to increase rice yield, but little is known of the effects of [CO2] at low temperature, which is the major constraint to

How does elevated ozone impact soybean? A meta‐analysis of photosynthesis, growth and yield

The impact of ozone increased with developmental stage, with little effect on vegetative growth and the greatest effect evident at completion of seed filling, and Elevated carbon dioxide significantly decreased ozone-induced losses, which may be explained by a significant decrease in stomatal conductance.

Response of rice to carbon dioxide and temperature

Rice responses to drought under carbon dioxide enrichment. 1. Growth and yield

Projections of future climate change include a strong likelihood of a doubling of current atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration ([CO2]) and possible shifts in precipitation patterns. Drought

Seasonal changes in the effects of elevated CO2 on rice at three levels of nitrogen supply: a free air CO2 enrichment (FACE) experiment

Over time, the stimulative effect of elevated CO2 on the photosynthesis of rice crops is likely to be reduced with increasing duration of CO2 exposure, but the resultant effects on crop productivity

Global food insecurity. Treatment of major food crops with elevated carbon dioxide or ozone under large-scale fully open-air conditions suggests recent models may have overestimated future yields

Findings suggest that current projections of global food security are overoptimistic, as the fertilization effect of CO2 is less than that used in many models, while rising ozone will cause large yield losses in the Northern Hemisphere.

Influence of rising atmospheric CO2 and phosphorus nutrition on the grain yield and quality of rice (Oryza sativa cv. Jarrah)

Raising the atmospheric CO 2 concentration from 350 μl of CO 2 per liter to a level expected by the end of the next century (700 μl/L) influenced both the grain yield and quality of the
