Report: Farmers may have to adjust for climate change
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Some farmers might have to re-adjust the way they plant their crops because of the warmer weather.
According to a new report, temperatures in California are up 1.7 degrees since 1895. But by 2050, the state is expected to be 2.7 degrees warmer than it was just 12 years ago.
The report says farmers in the San Joaquin Valley might have to consider those changes when they plant or replace fruit trees that depend on cooler weather. That's because a warmer climate will most likely translate into fewer nights below freezing.
