Weather is very important in agriculture.
Changes in the weather greatly affect crops (how
they grow, their amount, their state).
In poor countries where irrigation is not
available, farmers depend on the weather (rain) in
order to provide water for agriculture. The
weather is with no doubt the most important factor
determining whether their agricultural enterprise
is successful or not. However weather also
affects countries which have irrigation, because
there is still some correlation of yield amount
and weather conditions. There are studies that
suggest that climate variability and climate
change can have adverse impacts on global food
production and food security. The fluctuations on
the weather can be a consequence of climate
variability and climate change.
