  author={Anton J. Haverkort and A. Verhagen},
  journal={Potato Research},
Since the onset of the industrial revolution, in 1750, the concentration of carbon dioxide rose from 290 to 380 parts per million. Especially during the last decennia, the effects of increased greenhouse gases concentrations are being felt. The last 14 years worldwide contained the warmest 13 years since weather recording started. For southern Europe, the major effects reported by the International Panel on Climate Change are reduced water availability and a shorter suitable winter time slot… 

Climate Change and Potato Production in Contrasting South African Agro-ecosystems 1. Effects on Land and Water Use Efficiencies

Explorations of the impact of climate change on potential potato yields were obtained by downscaling the projections of six different coupled climate models to high spatial resolution over southern

Climate Change and Potato Production in Contrasting South African Agro-Ecosystems 2. Assessing Risks and Opportunities of Adaptation Strategies

This study aims to assess the risks and opportunities posed by climate change to potato growers in South Africa and to evaluate adaptation measures in the form of changes in planting time growers

Assessing the Impacts of Climate Variations on the Potato Production in Bangladesh: A Supply and Demand Model Approach

From the perspective of nutritional security, we investigated the influence of climate change on potato production in Bangladesh using a supply and demand model by considering the potato as an

Earlier planting offsets the adverse effect of global warming on spring potato in South Korea.

Adaptation of Boreal Field Crop Production to Climate Change

The average annual global temperature increased by 0.76°C during the past century (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), 2007) and climate modelling results show an increase in annual

Impact of climate change on the potato crop and biodiversity in its center of origin

Abstract The Andean region is the most important center of potato diversity in the world. The global warming trend which has taken place since the 1950s, that is 2-3 times the reported global warming

Coincidence of variation in potato yield and climate in northern China.

Exploration of Climate Change Effects on Shifting Potato Seasons, Yields and Water Use Employing NASA and National Long-Term Weather Data

Climate change is a threat to agriculture but also presents opportunities and requires adaptation strategies. In many countries adequate meteorological data is lacking, so this is where NASA weather

The effect of climate change on global potato production was assessed. Potential yields were calculated with a simulation model and a grid with monthly climate data for current (1961–1990) and

Ecology of potato cropping systems in relation to latitude and altitude.

Comparison of two potato simulation models under climate change . II . Application of climate change scenarios

The effects of climate change (for the year 2050 compared to ambient climate) and change in climatic variability on potato growth and production at 6 sites in Europe were calculated. These

Spatial impacts of climate and market changes on agriculture in Europe

Farmers and farming regions in the EU are increasingly concerned about whether they can remain competitive in a liberalising economy. Until now, climate change, which poses an additional stress to

Herbivory in global climate change research: direct effects of rising temperature on insect herbivores

Future research needs to consider insect herbivore phenotypic and genotypic flexibility, their responses to global change parameters operating in concert, and awareness that some patterns may only become apparent in the longer term.

Herbivory in global climate change research: direct effects of rising temperature on insect herbivores

This review examines the direct effects of climate change on insect herbivores. Temperature is identi®ed as the dominant abiotic factor directly affecting herbivorous insects. There is little

Agro-ecological zonation for potato production

To target research to production problems in those areas of Latin America, Africa and Asia where cultivation of potato is most promising, CIP and collaborating NARC’s need to know what tuber yields

Simulated effects of elevated carbon dioxide concentration and temperature on the productivity of potato. Interaction with cultivar differences for earliness.

The effects of doubled carbon dioxide concentration and elevated temperature were evaluated by means of a crop growth model. Total dry matter production and tuber yield of potato cultivars, growing
