Biogas production from crops and their residues is widely used as feed because of its availability and high methane content due to its calorific value. The aim of this study is to estimate the response of cereal crops such as maize, sorghum, wheat, barley and rice to elevated temperature and his impact on biogas production by meta-analysis method. Studies show that increasing temperature by 1°C and 2°C respectively decreased biomass yield by -5% to -7% (wheat), -5% to -16% (rice), -7% to -12% (sorghum), -10% to -14% (maize) and -4% (barley). On the other hand, key element which determine the quality of the plant and which are negatively affect by elevated temperature are the basic elements for a good quality and quantity of biogas such as ( lipids, carbohydrates, micro and macro-element). If protein concentration increases under warming, decrease in grain is largely due to lower starch concentration under elevated temperature, -13 to -33% for barley, -2 to -33% for wheat and -2 to -6% for rice. Lipids also decrease under elevated temperature and some nutrients like Selenium (Se), Cobalt (Co) and Aluminum (Al) which decrease respectively by -43.5%, -15% and -22%. Based on these results, we can argued that biogas production from cereal crops is threatened in the future.
