In recent years, food shortages and unsatisfactory harvest yields have begun to plague more and more regions across the globe as the climate crisis and the consequences of geopolitics descend upon us. Shortages of wheat, sugar, eggs, and more can be felt in most countries, and supermarket produce shelves have been noticeably sparse. Ecologists and scientists agree that it is high time we begin to treat the climate crisis as a reality, and start to prepare for the new future that awaits us.
In the midst of dry, lengthy heat waves, the torrential downpours that usually follow, rising sea levels, and the general warming of the Earth, we will be forced to change what we eat and what we grow. So it's a good idea to get an understanding of what crops in the world will work best for our needs in the future, when our current food staples begin to fail us.
Read on to learn about the drought and heat-resistant produce that will save us in the wake of the climate crisis.
