Air pollution in India impacts agriculture and reduces crop yields by almost 50%, finds new study

This new study provides the first integrated historical examination of the role of both SLCPs (short-lived climate pollutants) and LLGHGs (long-lived greenhouse gases) on wheat and rice yields in India, and finds that the majority of losses are attributable to SLCPs - black carbon and ozone. It has been published in the journal PNAS.
