Nature Climate Change, Published online: 09 December 2019; doi:10.1038/s41558-019-0600-z

The risk of concurrent climate extremes affecting breadbasket regions is increasing with climate change, with wheat, maize and soybean crops at risk of simultaneous failure. Correlation between the regions and climate extremes should be considered to ensure food security in the future.
