Video: climate change's effect on berries

EU research group releases animation highlighting their efforts to help berry producers beat climate change

The EU-funded project GoodBerry has released a short animated film warning of climate change's impact on European berry production.

The research group hopes to raise awareness of rising temperatures on the continent and how it will affect berry producers, as well as consumers.

Launched in 2016, GoodBerry brings together a multidisciplinary team of 19 partners from Europe as well as Chile and China, with a four year funding window.

The interdisciplinary consortium aims at identifying the berry fruit crops of strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant that are most compatible with the new environmental conditions.
