Due to water shortages and rising temperatures, crop failures are most likely to be experienced in Southern California and Italy, experts say. The results of the study can help manufacturers prioritize long-term strategies.
Climate change could leave the world without ketchup, tomato juice and other similar products. The fact is that, as predicted, by 2050 the rate of processing of tomatoes will be greatly reduced.
This is reported by Nature Food.
Professor Davide Cammarano from Aarhus University in Denmark said that tomatoes for processing are grown in open fields. This means that a person cannot fully control the environment in which they grow up.
To predict what will happen to the cultivation of tomatoes, experts have created five different climate models. All forecasts agreed that production will slow down sharply due to global warming.
