Rising carbon dioxide levels would also have effects, both detrimental and beneficial, on crop yields. At the same time, agriculture has been shown to produce significant effects on climate change, primarily through the production and release of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide.
