Relation among Agriculture, Trade and Industry: Many industries running in Nepal are based on agriculture. Such industries are dependent on the raw materials that come from agriculture sector. The examples are sugar industry from sugarcane, jute industry from jute, cotton factory from cotton, leather industry from animal skin, tea factory from tea leaves, etc. To run these industries, raw materials are made available from the agriculture sector. Agriculture tools like spade, plough, etc are produced in the industries. Increased production in agriculture is made possible by the use of these tools. Other items including chemical fertilizers and insecticides are made available by industries. We can have increased agriculture production…show more content…
Impact of climate change on agriculture Studies on the likely impact of global warming on agriculture differ in their conclusions, and there is a great deal of uncertainty about the localised impacts. Most recent studies point to the likelihood of small but beneficial impacts on cereal crop yields in middle-high latitude temperate zones, due to small temperature increases (1-2 °C). These positive effects would, however, be followed by subsequent losses as temperatures increase. There is a consensus that low latitude, tropical zones are most negatively affected, since they are already experiencing temperatures at levels that are close to or beyond a threshold at which further increases will reduce rather than increase agricultural yields. Not only are temperatures higher in low-latitude countries, but these countries have less capacity to adapt (i.e., increase irrigation) and derive a larger percentage of their GDP from agriculture. Beyond warming, climate change is projected to increase the frequency and severity of extreme climate events (i.e., droughts, floods), which will impact agricultural production and food security. Elevated CO2 levels can lead to positive crop responses, but these are considered to be lower than previously thought. Agriculture can play an important mitigating role. While most human-induced GHG emissions derive from the use of fossil fuels, one third of the total comes from land use
