Climate change is virtually certain and efforts for adaptation is essential not only to decrease the negative consequences but also to increase the opportunities. To achieve the goal, we need to address emerging research topics in the field of agricultural meteorology with regard to climate change adaptation. We touch upon how harvesting insights from crop models with different complexities can be improved, the detection and attribution of impacts on agricultural ecosystems associated with climate and technological changes, and how crop and weather datasets can be improved. We conclude by discussing important knowledge gaps that need to be addressed in future research.
