Severe weather hits central U.S. while flash drought encroaches on Kansas and Oklahoma

Climate change impacts on temperate fruit and nut production: a systematic review

This review represents an effort towards identifying the current state of knowledge, key challenges, and gaps that emerge from studies of climate change effects on fruit and nut crops produced in warm temperate climates.

World Bank Group: Droughts and Deficits

Summary Evidence of the Global Impact on Economic Growth

Fifth National Climate Assessment

The Fifth National Climate Assessment (NCA5) analyzes the impacts of climate and global change in the United States.

National Drought Highlights May 2023

As of April 2023, approximately 8% of the contiguous United States was experiencing severe to extreme drought, while 4% of the area was categorized as severely to extremely wet. In total, around 15% of the contiguous U.S. fell under moderate to extreme drought. Historical data on drought conditions and climate information is available from 1900 onwards, and according to the U.S. Drought Monitor, as of May 2, 2023, about 24.42% of the contiguous U.S. was facing moderate to exceptional drought.

Drought Impacts Summary January 2023

Drought improved across much of the U.S. in January 2023. With more storm activity and wetter conditions, fewer impacts came to light during the month. Of the 52 impacts active in January, 14 were for California, 10 for Utah, eight for Arizona and seven for Kansas.

Climate change impacts and adaptations of wine production

Climate change is affecting grape yield, composition and wine quality. As a result, the geography of wine production is changing.

Cornell Report: Warmer planet will trigger increased farm losses

Extreme heat is already harming crop yields, but a new report quantifies just how much that warming is cutting into farmers’ financial security.

The Mediterranean region is warming 20% faster than the global average.

Impacts will exert additional pressure on already strained ecosystems and on vulnerable economies and societies.

Coastal zones face heightened disaster risks, including flooding and erosion, and the salinization of river deltas and aquifers that sustain food security and livelihoods.

The Mediterranean is home to more than 510 million people.

By 2050, water demand is projected to double or even triple.

2°C global warming will reduce precipitation by ~10 to 15%.

An increase of 2°C to 4°C would reduce precipitation by up to 30% in Southern Europe.

Water temperature is expected to rise by between 1.8°C and 3.5°C by 2100 with hotspots in Spain and in in the Eastern Mediterranean.

North American monsoon season sees tepid start

At the end of July and beginning of August, three main areas of drought and abnormal dryness were ongoing in the Lower 48: the Northwest; the upper Midwest, Corn Belt, and eastern Great Plains; and from the central Gulf Coast into parts of the Southwest. Smaller areas of drought and abnormal dryness were scattered throughout other parts of the country.

Ocloc Netting, Spray Cap

Irrigation via the Ocloc NSC helps prevent frost damage by spraying water in the vineyard via two targeted micro sprinkler sprays, developed with the world leading Antelco™ design engineers, that produce the perfect size droplets, calibrated to spray the correct distance and cover a targeted area along the trellis. The sprays overlap, giving complete coverage through a continuously pulsated wet zone. The water movement serves to create air movement and keep the air temperature above freezing.
