Rice is the second major food crop in central Asia. Climate change may greatly affect the rice production in the region. This study quantifies the effects of projected increases in temperature and atmospheric CO2 concentration on the phenological development and grain yield of rice using the ‘‘ORYZA2000’’ simulation model. The model was parameterized and validated on the basis of datasets from three field experiments with three widely cultivated rice varieties under various seeding dates in the… 
Simulation of the impacts of climate change on phenology, growth, and yield of various rice genotypes in humid sub-tropical environments using AquaCrop-Rice
The objective of the present study was to use AquaCrop-Rice model to study the impact of climate change on different rice cultivars in northern Iran, and results indicated different responses of Rice cultivars under climate change.
Spatiotemporal rice yield variations and potential agro-adaptation strategies in Bangladesh: A biophysical modeling approach
Abstract Rice (Oryza sativa) is the major cereal crop in the Southeast Asian region, and its yield variations are highly sensitive to climate change. Climate change will not only threaten regional
Simulating Climate Change Impacts and Adaptive Measures for Rice Cultivation in Hunan Province, China

Impact of Climate Variability on the Rice Yield in Uttar Pradesh: an Agro-Climatic Zone Based Study
In the backdrop of the established fact that the climate and agricultural produce foster a close-knit relation, the present study explores the impacts of climate variability on the rice yields across
Simulation of crop and water productivity for rice (Oryza sativa L.) using APSIM under diverse agro-climatic conditions and water management techniques in Sri Lanka
The APSIM–Oryza model has been used worldwide to evaluate the impact of diverse management practices on the growth of rice (Oryza sativa L.). Despite its importance, the crop productivity (kgha−1)
Simulating the Impact of Nitrogen Management on Rice Yield and Nitrogen Uptake in Irrigated Lowland by ORYZA2000 Model
ABSTRACT This paper considers the implications of ORYZA2000 model in simulating physiological traits of rice at different nitrogen concentrations. The experiment was conducted over the course of the
Impact of Climate Change on Paddy Production: Evidence from Nepal
This study assesses the long-run relationship and short-run dynamics between paddy yields and climate variables, particularly maximum and minimum temperature and rainfall, using time-series data from
Resilience of Grain Yield in China Under Climate Change Scenarios
As global warming issues become increasingly serious, grain yield and socioeconomic development have been seriously threatened. The key to ensuring grain yield is to recognize the risks caused by
Prediction of Maize Yield Response to Climate Change with Climate and Crop Model Uncertainties
AbstractProjections of climate change impacts on crop yields are subject to uncertainties, and quantification of such uncertainty is essential for the effective use of the projection results for
Simulating the impact of water saving irrigation and conservation agriculture practices for rice–wheat systems in the irrigated semi-arid drylands of Central Asia
Abstract Resource scarcity (labor, water, and energy) and high production costs are challenging the sustainability of conventional methods for rice and wheat establishment in Central Asia. Water


Simulating the rice yield change in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River under SRES B2 scenario
Abstract As one of the most important crops in China, rice accounts for 18% of the country’s total cultivated area. Increasing atmospheric CO 2 concentration and associated climate change may greatly
Modeling the response of rice phenology to climate change and variability in different climatic zones: Comparisons of five models
Crop models have been widely used in simulating and predicting changes in rice phenology in the major rice production regions of China, however the uncertainties in simulating crop phenology at a
Climate Change and Rice Yields in Diverse Agro-Environments of India. I. Evaluation of Impact Assessment Models
This paper reports results of a comparison of two popular rice growth models- Ceres-Rice and ORYZA1N for the same input conditions. Both models use different approaches for simulating growth and
Simulating the impact of climate change on rice production in Asia and evaluating options for adaptation

High-Temperature Effects on Rice Growth, Yield, and Grain Quality
It is concluded that there are considerable risks for rice production, stemming from high-temperature stress but benefits from the mitigation or adaptation options through progress in rice research may sustain the production systems of rice in the future warmer world.
Description and evaluation of the rice growth model ORYZA2000 under nitrogen-limited conditions
Abstract Various crop growth simulation models exist for rice but thorough validation and evaluation reports are scarce. We present the model ORYZA2000, which simulates the growth and development of
Balancing the rice carbon budget in China using spatially-distributed data
Rice paddies are a source of food for over half of the world population and also the source of a very potent greenhouse gas, methane. We used the FAO soil map of the world to produce a
Exploring options for water savings in lowland rice using a modelling approach
Abstract Water-saving irrigation regimes are needed to deal with a reduced availability of water for rice production. Two important water-saving technologies at field scale are alternately
Impact of elevated CO2 and temperature on rice yield and methods of adaptation as evaluated by crop simulation studies
Results suggest that the limitations on rice yield imposed by high CO2 and temperature can be mitigated, at least in part, by altering the sowing time and the selection of genotypes that possess higher fertility of spikelets at high temperatures.
