Description:
SLCPs, especially tropospheric O3, detrimentally impact ecosystems including crop yields, and are affecting food security. Present day global relative yield losses due to tropospheric O3 exposure has been estimated for four major crops and range between 7-12% for wheat, 6-16% for soybean, 3-5% for rice and 3-5% for maize.
