Not all of the possible scenarios are discouraging. It is possible that some areas could benefit from the change in climate. Some regions with harsh climates could find themselves in more favorable conditions, with milder winters, or more abundant rainfall, or both. Historically low rainfall areas, such as India, could receive additional rainfall, which would boost water supplies and allow for additional agricultural activity or increased productivity, or both. Studies on Japanese agriculture concluded that a climate change induced by a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide could result in an increase in rice yields of up to 25% (Ausubel 1991).

Yaron and H. 1 Salinity The most important water quality parameter for salinity is total salt concentration, which is usually expressed as the total dissolved solids (TDS) or the electrical conductivity (EC). Both measures are correlated with plant growth. The effect of salinity on plant growth is due mainly to total soluble solids (TSS). An osmotic effect is stressful to most crops, since it depresses the external water potential by making water less readily available. If the environmental osmotic potential becomes lower than that of the plant cells, crops will suffer an osmotic desiccation.
