Climate change effects on agriculture are negative overall but some impacts are positive

In high-latitude regions, particularly in the northern hemisphere, moderate increases in temperature and rainfall changes are expected to lead to a small gain in crop yields and livestock production by lengthening growing and grazing seasons. Increasing concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere may also benefit crop yields, making crops grow faster and more efficiently.
