Research on the impact of climate change on agricultural production has mainly focused on the effect of climate and its variability on individual crops, while the potential for adapting to climate change through crop substitution has received less attention. This is surprising because the proportions of individual crops in the total crop area have changed considerably over periods of time much shorter than those typically investigated in climate change studies. The flexibility of farmers to… 

Analysis of the climate change effect on wheat production systems and investigate the potential of management strategies

Climate change adversely impacts crop production and imposes a wide range of constraints on agricultural systems especially in water-limited environments. Management strategies to enhance adaptation

Impact of Climate Change on Crop Production: Effects and Management

Climate change is one of the major challenges to global food security in the twenty-first century. There is a need to produce more food for the rapidly growing human population; however, this is

Maize migration: key crop expands to higher altitudes under climate change in the Andes

Climate change is expected to profoundly alter the growing conditions of agricultural crops, potentially causing decline in food production in several parts of the world. A switch from crops and crop

Adaptation strategies for rice cultivation under climate change in Central Vietnam

This study investigates the impact of climate change on winter and summer rice (Oryza sativa) yield and evaluates several adaptation measures to overcome the negative impact of climate change on rice

Global climate change increases risk of crop yield losses and food insecurity in the tropical Andes

The production of maize and potatoes declined by >87% when plants were grown under warmer temperatures, mainly as a result of the greater incidence of novel pests, and it is estimated that local farmers may experience severe economic losses under simulated migration and warming scenarios.

Assessment of the changes in the yields of millet crop under different scenarios of climate change using DSSAT model

Agriculture in Mali is vulnerable to climate change. Rainfall remains uncertain for the future, while the increase in temperature is almost a certainty. The objective of this present study was to

Evaluation of climate change impacts and adaptation strategies for maize cultivation in the Himalayan foothills of India

This study evaluates the impacts of climate change on rainfed maize ( Zea mays ) yield and evaluates different agro-adaptation measures to counteract its negative impacts at Sikkim, a Himalayan state

Towards Climate-Smart Agricultural Approach: Prospect for Smallholder Farmers in Semi-Arid Regions

Climate change has become a major threat to human developmental sectors in recent times. Agriculture is particularly vulnerable sector because it is highly dependent on climate variables. General

Simulating Growth and Development Processes of Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.): Adaptation and Evaluation of the CSM-CROPGRO Model

In recent years, the intra-annual yield variability of traditional food crops grown in Europe increased due to extreme weather events driven by climate change. The Andean crop quinoa (Chenopodium



Modelling crop-climate interactions in Spain: Vulnerability and adaptation of different agricultural systems to climate change

This study evaluates the theoretical impact of climate change on yields and water use of two crops with different responses to increased CO2 and which represent contrasting agricultural systems in

Shifts in comparative advantages for maize, oat and wheat cropping under climate change in Europe

The present modelling approach represents a simplification of factors determining the distribution of cereal crops, and also some uncertainties in the data basis were apparent, and a promising way of future model improvement could be through a systematic analysis and inclusion of other variables, such as key soil properties and socio-economic conditions, influencing the comparative advantages of specific crops.

Global scale climate–crop yield relationships and the impacts of recent warming

Changes in the global production of major crops are important drivers of food prices, food security and land use decisions. Average global yields for these commodities are determined by the

Mitigation of climate change impacts on maize productivity in northeast of Iran: a simulation study

Development and evaluation of mitigation strategies are fundamental to manage climate change risks. This study was built on (1) quantifying the response of maize (Zea mays L.) grain yield to
