Consequences of future climate change and changing climate variability on maize yields in the midwestern United States
Any change in climate will have implications for climate-sensitive systems such as agriculture, forestry, and some other natural resources. With respect to agriculture, changes in solar radiation,Expand

Osmotic adjustment, drought tolerance and yield in castor (Ricinus communis L.) hybrids.
Abstract A study was conducted to analyse the association of osmotic adjustment (OA) with drought tolerance and yield in castor (Ricinus communis L.). Hybrids (GCH4, DCH32 and DCH177) and theirExpand

Radiation and water use efficiencies of rainfed castor beans (Ricinus communis L.) in relation to different weather parameters
Abstract Field experiments on rainfed castor beans ( Ricinus communis L.) were conducted for 4 years (1990–1993) to explain the variability in radiation use efficiency (RUE) and water use efficiencyExpand

Impacts of climate change on sorghum productivity in India: Simulation study
An attempt was made to assess the impact of climate change on the crop productivity of sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] in India. Climate change scenarios were projected for three sorghumExpand

Comparative performance of sorghum hybrids and their parents under extreme water stress
Sorghum hybrids are generally considered to be drought tolerant based on their yield performance in multi-locational trials. The present study was undertaken to test this hypothesis. A short durationExpand

Validation of Corn, Soybean, and Wheat Models in DSSAT for Assessing Climate Change Impacts on Midwest Crop Production
Validation of crop models is a prerequisite for predicting crop responses under a given set of conditions. The validation process also gives the model users an indication of the magnitude of errorsExpand
