Yang, Huiyi; Dobbie, Steven; Ramirez-Villegas, Julian; Feng, Kuishuang; Challinor, Andrew J.; Chen, Bing et al. (2016): Potential negative consequences of geoengineering on crop production. A study of Indian groundnut. In Geophys. Res. Lett. DOI 10.1002/2016GL071209.

"A few case studies suggest that certain crops are likely to benefit from solar dimming geoengineering, yet we show geoengineering is projected to have detrimental effects for groundnut. Using an ensemble of crop-climate model simulations, we illustrate that groundnut yields in India undergo a statistically significant decrease of up to 20 % as a result of solar dimming geoengineering relative to RCP4.5."
