A new study published in Nature Communications by researchers at the University of Birmingham looks into whether the places where we currently grow our staple crops—corn, wheat, and rice—will be able to keep growing these things into the next century.

The report finds that the eastern US, which grows much of the world’s corn and wheat, is going to be hit hard by climate changes over this century. Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa, and parts of South America are also going to see falling crop yields. In the world’s northern latitudes, they report, there is actually going to be a bump in production, as hotter temperatures either increase yields or make it possible to grow crops in areas where it was previously too cold. The researchers predicted that both central Russia and Canada would see significant gains.

JOLLY TIME Simply Popped Butter & Sea Salt is MY PICK OF THE WEEK!
I love popcorn. And this microwave popcorn is one of the best I have had in a long time. I popped three bags and each time came out perfectly with very few un-popped kernels and not one scorched piece. Watch my full review.
