Study: Global Food Security Aided by Combining Different Methods
Researchers at UF are closer to helping producers better meet global food demand. A global team of scientists, led by Dr. Senthold Asseng, used two different simulation methods and one statistical method to predict the impact of rising temperatures on global wheat production, and all came to similar estimates.
