Study reveals millets can mitigate effects of climate change on rainfed agriculture, thus improving food security.

New Delhi, July 1 (India Science Wire): Increasing temperatures, changing monsoon and more frequent extreme climate events are posing a threat to food security in India. A new study has found that while almost all grain crops are sensitive to these changes, adding more coarse grains or millets in crop production mix may help make food supply withstand vagaries of climate change.

A study suggests water towers of Asia contain less water than estimated.

The Himalayas are often called the water towers of Asia because of the vast amount of water locked in the form of ice in thousands of glaciers there. But concerns relating to climate change have often put a question mark on future water availability from these glaciers. Now a new study on ice thickness of glaciers has estimated that glaciers in the Hindu Kush Himalayas might contain 27 percent less ice than previously suggested.
