The place of bananas in a warming world

Wednesday, 31 October 2012

Climate change will affect where bananas are grown, but the range of the crop is not expected to shrink, according to the policy brief Recalibrating Food Production in the Developing World. Bananas might lose out in areas where rainfall will decrease but warmer weather might allow the cultivation of certain varieties at higher altitudes. Bananas might even replace potatoes in places, echoed the BBC.
