Pd. 1


Possible positive impacts

Possible Positive Impacts

  • Increased productivity from warmer temperatures

  • Possibility to discover new crops

  • Longer growing season

  • Accelerated maturation

  • Decreased moisture stress

  • Warmer nighttime temperatures


Possible negative impacts

Possible Negative Impacts

  • Increased insect infestations

  • Crop damage from intense heat

  • Planning problems due to less reliable forecasts

  • Increased soil erosion

  • Increased weed growth and disease outbreak

  • Decreased herbicide and pesticide efficiency

  • Increased moisture stress and droughts

  • Sea water may inundate rivers

Snow Cover

  • Benefits:

    • Insulator to the soil

    • Conserves soil moisture

    • Decreases need for mulch

  • Drawbacks:

    • Heavy snow can damage trees

    • Small mammals protected from predators
