    Genetically modified crops were first produced in 1982 and commercially introduced in 1996. Plants are no longer victim to pesticide use or climate conditions. Farmers in third world countries are now able to produce more crops with higher nutrition levels. Vaccinations can potentially be made and administered as edible substances. While many consumers graciously accepted them due to their possible benefits, others protested their introduction due to a lack of evidence concerning potential risks…

    impacts on crops, we will look at the effects of such phenomenon as extreme temperature (which may be hot or cold), increased CO2 concentration and the adverse effects of elevated exposure to ultraviolet rays on processes such as transpiration, photosynthesis and pollination to fully evaluate the effects of the global warming phenomenon. CO2 increase is generally very constructive in the growth of crops. It stimulates their growth and yield by enabling the photosynthesis process. Crops such as…

    Hedging Crops with Futures Contracts When first introduced to the idea of hedging with future contracts, it can be intimidating to say the least.

    IMERG rainfall for crop yield forecast, we will use a crop simulation model (CSM). One of the main goals of CSM is to estimate agricultural production as a function of weather (e.g., rainfall and ambient temperature) and soil conditions as well as crop management. The CSM uses sets of differential equations, and calculate both rate and state variables over time, normally from planting until harvest maturity. The CSM will enable us to conduct robust analysis of the impact on crop yields due to…
