Agriculture is highly dependent on climate and environmental conditions. Climate change effects are related to our food supply, nutrient levels, soil nutrients, water management, and other conditions. Changes in temperature, amount of carbon dioxide, and the frequency and intensity of weather condition positively effect on crop yields, quality and production. Changes in the frequency and severity of droughts and floods could pose challenges for farmers. Global warming leads to increase in temperature which causes significant threat to species and their adaptation ability, which could disrupt ecosystems. Climate change makes it more difficult to grow crops which can be a problem for food security. The effects of climate change also need to be considered along with other evolving factors that affect agricultural production, such as changes in farming practices and technology. To fight against this situation is the biggest challenge for farm and agricultural sectors. Many technologies have been developed in recent years to improve crop yield, productivity and adaptation power to the environment.
