The agricultural sector in Turkey is one of the most climatically affected sectors. The results showed that agricultural productivity was directly affected by changes in temperature and precipitation rate and duration. On the other hand, the agricultural sector is one of the primary and crucial sectors for Turkish economy, human nutrition and livestock feed. Therefore, the capacity and ability of the agricultural sector for climate-resistance is of great importance for sustainability of food production, natural resource usage and ecosystem maintains. Agricultural production is being decreasing in various rates due to extreme weather events such as drought, flood, hail, frost, etc. that have increased in number and severity in recent years. It is necessary to quickly determine the measures that can be taken against these adverse events that cause yield and productivity losses. In line with these purposes, this review will focus on agricultural practices that can alleviate adverse climate effects on crop plants and strategies that can protect the crops from adverse climatic conditions by emphasizing on the importance of these environmentally friendly practices.
