How climate change is impacting British fruit and vegetables

This report from The Climate Coalition (a UK-based association of organisations with an interest in climate change) outlines how production of fruit and vegetables in the UK is threatened by extreme weather events made more likely by climate change.

According to the report, the UK is likely to experience longer-lasting and more intense heatwaves, more frequent extremely wet winters, and more frequent dry summers.

The report discusses the impacts of extreme weather events on production of crops such as potatoes, strawberries and carrots.
