The impact of climate change on agriculture will be one of
the major deciding factors influencing the future food security
of mankind on earth. Agriculture is not only sensitive to climate
change but, at the same time, is one of the major drivers for climate
change. Understanding the weather changes over a period of time
and adjusting the management practices towards achieving better
harvest is a challenge to the growth of agricultural sector as a
whole. The most imminent climatic changes in recent times is the
increase in the atmospheric temperatures due to increased levels
of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4),
ozone (O3), nitrous oxide (N2O) and chloro fluoro carbons (CFCs).
Because of the increasing concentrations of those radiative or
greenhouse gases, there is much concern about future changes in
our climate and direct or indirect effect on agriculture Garg et al.
