The team studied the effects of climate change on five major crops: finger millet, maize, pearl millet, sorghum and rice which make up the vast majority of grain production during the June-to-September monsoon season in India -- with rice contributing three-quarters of the grain supply for the season.
In a paper published in Environmental Research Letters, Kyle Davis, an environmental data scientist from the Data Science Institute at Columbia University found that the yields from grains such as millet, sorghum and maize are more resilient to extreme weather.
