This figure appears in chapter 3 of the Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Global Change Research Program for Fiscal Year 2015 report.

This graph shows projected impacts of climate change on crop productivity (darker blue) and related agricultural and economic responses. Black dots indicate the average percent change in each variable by 2050, relative to no climate change; the height of each column shows the range of results across climate, crop, and economic models. These results represent global averages for major field crops including wheat, rice, coarse grains, and oil seeds. (Credit: Adapted from Nelson et al., 2014, PNAS)
