Abstract

The present study examines how the climate change impacts on agriculture production and the rural economy of Greece (1977-2007), using the data from the average annual air temperature and annual precipitation amounts as well as the data related to agricultural production. The method of multiple linear regression was used for evaluating the effect of climatic change on the agricultural production in Greece. The results of the survey show that during the last 30 years the observed temperature increase affects negatively the final Added Gross Value of the primary sector in the country and thus in agricultural productivity but the rate effect is not significant.
