Scientists find Beans that can tolerate Extremely Hot Weather Conditions

A study conducted by scientists from the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) showed that beans could combat climate change. The scientists have come up with more than 30 varieties of beans that can grow even in extremely hot weather conditions. According to reports, the study was conducted to create beans that can tolerate harsh climate conditions which are caused by global warming.

For the study, a number of scientists from different locations of the world had teamed up. The main objective of the study was to find a solution for problem of crops. The scientists aimed to find something that can grow in very hot climate conditions.

Scientists breed heat tolerant beans to endure with global warming. The successful study has come at a time when increased carbon emissions are leading to dilapidated climate. Due to change in climate conditions, it is becoming very difficult for farmers all over the globe to grow crops. Increase in heat has been affecting the growth process for most crops.

The successful discovery of over 30 varieties of beans that can grow even in extremely hot weather conditions could be a relief for farmers amid fears of increased food insecurity. According to some scientific reports, earth will have to experience increased climate changes, which means that crop production will be subjected to harsher conditions. During the study, the scientists also found that most conventional varieties of beans are not capable of tolerating harsh climate conditions.

According to the scientists, the new varieties of beans will be able to cope with harsh and unforgiving conditions. They also expect that successful results from this program and more experiments and developments are expected to be carried out on other crop species.
