Climate Change: Longer Growing Season
Researchers say climate change is affecting Swedish agriculture.
Sweden Radio News reports that not only is the growing season here longer, many crops can be grown farther north. Both the Swedish Association of Farmers and the researchers at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences have reported on the trend.
For example, corn and oilseed rape (canola) can now be cultivated much farther north than previously.
But the researchers stress that they don’t know the long-term consequences of the changes.
