Northeastern Europe could become the continent’s food pantry, as the region is less tolerant of cereals due to climate change, the Corvinus University of Budapest said in a statement to MTI on Thursday, outlining the findings of a joint study with ELTE and BME.

Grain is more resilient to climate change in the north

The analysis shows that the increase in grain yields in the northeast of the continent is now greater than in any other region. The shift in the focus of production has been mainly explained by climate change, which has halved the area under maize and wheat in Italy, two-thirds in Greece and almost completely disappeared in Portugal. The adverse effects of temperature peaks are now being felt in almost all of Europe. (MTI)
