Impact of Climate Change on Irrigation Demand and Crop Growth in a Mediterranean Environment of Turkey

  title={Impact of Climate Change on Irrigation Demand and Crop Growth in a Mediterranean Environment of Turkey},
  author={Tomohisa Yano and Mehmet Devrim Aydin and Tomokazu Haraguchi},
A simulation study was carried out to describe effects of climate change on cropgrowth and irrigation water demand for a wheat-maize cropping sequence in aMediterranean environment of Turkey. Climate change scenarios were projected using dataof the three general circulation models-GCMs (CGCM2, ECHAM4 and MRI)-for theperiod of 1990 to 2100 and one regional climate model-RCM-for the period of 2070 to2079. Potential impacts of climate change based on GCMs data were estimated for the A2scenario in… CONTINUE READING
