(CNN) Global warming is increasing the variability of India's monsoon rains faster than previously projected, according to a recent study from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK).
For every degree Celsius of global warming, monsoon rainfalls will likely increase by 5%, according to one of the key points of the analysis.
While more rain might seem like a good thing, too much (or too little) can harm crops.
India depends on this seasonal rainfall to help sustain the crops necessary to feed the second-most populated country in the world.
However, the authors suggest climate change will negatively effect their agriculture if left unabated.
It's not just an increase in monsoon rainfall this study suggests could be impactful -- it is the variability.
This includes more prolonged dry spells where rainfall is needed most.
