Climate Change Affecting Coffee Growth

Climate Change Affecting Coffee Growth

Coffee is the second most traded commodity after oil. But, risks have risen about its global production and credit for this goes to climate change.

According to a research carried out by a group from the UK-Ethiopia, it has been found that the production of wild Arabica coffee is going to get affected a lot. The study, published in the journal Plos One, has called for measures by which global production of coffee can be improved.

In order to reach at the above given conclusion, different groups of researchers from the Royal Botanic Gardens in UK and Coffee Forest Forum (ECFF), Ethiopia, carried out an investigation. The research revolved around to know the pattern of growth of Arabica coffee with the help of a computer model.

Aaron Davis from the Royal Botanic Gardens said they tested the growth of coffee at different levels of carbon emission at different point of time. After assessing the results, the study researchers reached at a conclusion that carbon emission does effect the growth of coffee.

"The scale of the predictions is certainly cause for concern, but should be seen more as a baseline, from which we can more fully assess what actions are required", said Davis.
