Abstract

Cereal yields have grown considerably over the past several decades in many regions of the world, but rising temperatures pose an emerging threat to this progress. Our analysis of over six decades of French weather and yield data sheds light on the potential impacts of climate change on cereal yields and contextualizes these impacts relative to expected future technological progress.
