Short summary
We use ozone measurements at a suburban site in Punjab to estimate ozone-related crop yield losses for wheat, rice, cotton and maize in Punjab and Haryana for the years 2011-2013. Crop production losses amount to 10.3-20.8 Mt yr-1 for wheat and 3.2-5.4 Mt yr-1 for rice, enough to feed 225-437 million of India’s poor. The lower limit for the ozone-related economic losses is 3.7-6.5 billion USD (Punjab and Haryana), while the upper limit amounts to 3.5-20% of Indian GDP (all of India).
