Maize (Zea mays) is considered one of the most important crops for world food security. Globally, Brazil is the second largest maize producer and the fourth largest maize consumer. The climate variables is one of the main determining factors for crop yield. Given the possibility of future climate changes, our objective was to evaluate the impact of climate change on maize crop growth and development, assessed strategies to cope with the future crop and to quantify the impacts on various…

10 The knowledge of the effects of climate change on agro-ecosystems is fundamental to identify local actions aimed to maintain productivity and reduce environmental issues. This study investigates
Climate change could reduce and spatially reconfigure cocoa cultivation in the Brazilian Amazon by 2050
TLDR
There may be a need to expand land to cocoa production in the future, or else it will be necessary to plant a cocoa variety resistant to new climatic conditions, and procedures to combat illegal deforestation are recommended to prevent the most critical climate change scenarios from occurring.

How do various maize crop models vary in their responses to climate change factors?
TLDR
The largest maize crop model intercomparison to date, including 23 different models, is presented, suggesting that using an ensemble of models has merit and there was a large uncertainty in the yield response to [CO2 ] among models.
