Climate change will lead to increased temperatures and changed precipitation patterns with foreseen changes more pronounced in the Nordic countries than in many other parts of the world. As a consequence, seeds and plants need to be adapted to new agro-climatic conditions. Resistances of varieties to pathogens and pests need to be continuously improved. Changed production systems and expansion of certain crops to new regions will also imply needs for efforts in the entire plant breeding chain.
