Extreme temperatures and crop yields in Karnataka, India

This paper investigates the impact of exposure to extreme temperature on crop yields of a range of crops cultivated in the State of Karnataka, India. The crops examined in this study are rice, sorghum (jowar), finger millet (ragi), and pigeon pea. We use a taluk-level fixed effects panel data model to study the impact of exposure to extreme temperatures, measured in terms of extreme degree days, on crop yields.
