Ketchup At Risk, Squeeks Telegraph!

By Paul Homewood

Tomato ketchup, a stalwart of British dinner tables, may soon be a much rarer commodity as climate change threatens to halve the fruit’s global harvest this century, according to a new study.

Ketchup is made from so-called processing tomatoes which are predominantly cultivated in California, Italy and China, all areas which are at-risk from global warming.

Soaring temperatures mean the tomato plants, like most crops worldwide, are being increasingly put under stress and a team of researchers led by Aarhus University in Denmark created a mathematical model to see how different future climate change scenarios would affect production.
