Climate change "extending growing season"

Britain's growing season has extended on average by more than one day per year over the last 20 years, according to researchers at the University of East Anglia's Tyndall centre for climate change research. The scientists say human greenhouse gas emissions is the "likely" cause of the trend. In a study looking back over 200 years, they identify the longeest ever growing season as having occurred in 2000, when it lasted 330 days between 28 January and 22 December. See press release.
