Study Looks At Climate Change, Colo. Food Security

A new report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture warns that climate change could impact the food supply in Colorado--and across the world.

The three-year investigation brought together a team of experts including Peter Backlund at Colorado State University. Backlund says the water supply in Colorado will likely be impacted by climate change. That means a change in how farmers irrigate crops.

"We may see increased needs for water storage, and rain fed agriculture is going to be more challenging in the future then it is today," he said.
