Global warming will affect agrarian policy in Kazakhstan

Global warming will affect agrarian policy in KazakhstanClimate change is forcing agrarians around the world to revise the structure of crop planting. Under the influence of the weather, some species of plants will yield more yield, and others less. So in Kazakhstan, experts decided to plant sunflower instead of wheat. This was reported by representatives of the agricultural sector of the Republic.The main cause, which will affect the yield, is considered global warming. Employees of the Institute of Geography and Nature Management predict two options for climate change. The first - in the period from 2020 to 2040 g, the air temperature in the hot country will still rise by 1.7 ° C. The second is that it will rise by 1.9 ° C. From 2040 to 2060 g, an increase of 2.4 ° C is expected on the first assumption and 3.1 ° C on the second. It is expected that the amount of precipitation will increase from autumn to spring, and in summer, on the contrary, a drought is expected.If the forecasts are justified, then the yield of spring wheat by the year 2030 will be 64-90% of today's quantity, and by 2050 it will fall by 50-85%. These calculations were presented by the head of the climatology department of the Geography Institute Baisholanov Saken. Therefore, it is advantageous for local farmers to look for other crops, to which warming will work favorably.Experts believe that the yield of sunflower will be 102-110% of the average yield this year by 2030, and by 2050 - 100-106%. If agrarians introduce modern technologies for this period and properly select seed hybrids, then the yield will grow even more.
