Just read an interesting article on how global warming and pollution affects the growth of four major food crops (rice, wheat, corn and soy).

See article here: http://www.gizmag.com/crop-yield-drop-global-warming-air-pollution-ozone/33191/

Many of us are planning for changes in the climate - more intense weather events, warmer, drier, wetter, depending on where we live, but this made me curious about how plants respond to air pollution. Not always much we can do about having our food systems interact with polluted air. Do any of you have any information about this? I'd love to find or create a list of plants and their effects on and by pollution.
 
Roses are red. Violets are blue. Some poems rhyme. But this is a tiny ad:
