Estimation of Ground-level Ozone as a Risk Factor for Crop Production in Central Regions of the Russian Federation

In the territory of central Russia, surface ozone is considered a risk factor for crop productivity. The known processes of ozone’s effect on plants are discussed, as well as the quantities of ozone in the surface atmosphere that are harmful to various plant groups. The results of long-term ground-level ozone monitoring in central Russia (Vyatskiye Polyany town) show that, as a result of ongoing climate change and increased atmospheric pollution with nitrogen oxides, volatile hydrocarbons, and carbon monoxide, even in central Russia’s moderate non-hot climate, the ozone content of the surface atmosphere has increased significantly. Furthermore, the doses of ground-level ozone that plants in central Russia can be exposed to are comparable to and even surpass the amounts considered safe. This study examines the mechanics of ozone’s impact on plants, the levels of ozone in the surface atmosphere that are harmful to different plant families, and monitoring data on tropospheric ozone in Russia’s central regions.
