Climate change poses significant threats to agricultural systems, necessitating a comprehensive understanding of its impact for effective adaptation strategies. This study examines the influence of climate change on agriculture in the United States, primarily focusing on temperature shifts and precipitation variations. Utilizing historical data and climate projections, we analyse trends in mean temperature and precipitation patterns from 1950 to 2020. The results indicate a noteworthy increase in annual mean temperature over the years, attributed to climate change. This rise in temperature has multifaceted implications, including heat stress in crops and exacerbation of drought conditions. The study also explores the complex relationship between precipitation patterns and climate change, highlighting regional variations and potential shifts in future precipitation trends. By projecting data under SSP 1-1.9 emission scenario, we assess potential changes in mean temperatures, hot days, and precipitation for 2040-2059 periods. In conclusion, this study sheds light on the interplay between climate change and agricultural systems, emphasizing the need for adaptive strategies to secure food production and mitigate potential risks. The findings underscore the urgency of proactive measures to safeguard agricultural sustainability and resilience in the face of evolving climatic conditions.
