There is an “absence of generalized growth trends in extreme precipitation.”

The trends that do exist are decidedly positive. Global maize, rice, soybean, wheat yields have increased by ~3% per year since 1961 for two main reasons: “technological progress and CO2 fertilization”. The root of the modern global greening phenomenon is “the increase of atmospheric CO2”.
