Abstract
Climate is the primary determinant of agricultural productivity. Given the fundamental role of agriculture in human welfare, concern has been expressed by federal agencies and others regarding the potential effects of climate change on agricultural productivity. Climate change is expected to influence crop and livestock production, hydrologic balances, input supplies and other components of agricultural systems. However, the nature of these biophysical effects and the human responses to them are complex and uncertain. Technology can be termed as the application of knowledge for practical purposes. In this context, technology allows people to become more efficient or to do things that were not possible before. To benefit from technology, it needs to be successfully linked with country's overall development objectives and applied to solving socio-economic problems. In this paper we propose some practical applications of green technology in agricultural production to regain the loss due to climate change.
