Severe weather, including an intense hailstorm, has caused nearly $43 million worth of crop damage in southeastern Spain. The storm impacted thousands of acres of land, with some farmers reporting almost 100% of their crops being destroyed. The Utiel-Requena region, a primary grape producer, was hit the hardest, with losses estimated at $12.8 million. Climate change is believed to be a contributing factor to the increased frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, which pose a significant threat to agriculture. The report suggests that reducing greenhouse gas emissions is crucial in mitigating the impact of climate change on agriculture.
