1. Climate Change and Crop Production Edited by Matthew P. Reynolds Predictions of Climate Change and its Impact on Crop Productivity This book is very timely. The issues of food security and climate change are both at the top of the political agenda. The agricultural sector is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas. Resources Planning and Management, ]. Long-term climate prediction can provide guidance on long-standing and large-scale drought preparedness and risk management solutions beyond farmers’ activities, such as infrastructure investment and long-term institutional reforms [Wilhite, ; Zeng et al., submitted manuscript, ].
The forecast calls for better yields. This is a good moment to draw the important distinction between weather, which relates to short-term events that happen each day, and climate, which describes patterns and averages over a longer period of time. Weather forecasts don’t predict long term . The need for the web-based platform became apparent after its developers saw that while there were many global climate modeling systems available, none provided long-term localized data for Kenya. The Climate Atlas was originally developed by a team at Wageningen University in the Netherlands to help provincial authorities plan for the long.
"Fifty to year averages are becoming less relevant for forecasting future climate with the last 20 years providing a better indication on climate conditions over the medium term," they found. Based on August 1 conditions, the Illinois corn yield is forecast at bushels per acre, up 26 bushels from Production is forecast at billion bushels, up 20 percent from last year’s.

A similar approach is being applied to operational maize production forecasting in South Africa, where computed maize grain yield forecasts using a crop growth model linked to the SOI phase climate forecast system are compared against long-term cumulative probability distribution functions of yield to determine their probabilities of non Cited by: Kenya creates model to forecast climate change’s impact on crops,news,rikasensor,Kenya will launch its own localised weather modeling system in a bid to provide vital data on how climate change will impact crop production in the country.

Climate extremes, which reduce crop production, and the associated export bans can trigger food price spikes (Headey,Porter et al.,Lesk et al., ).An example is the wheat embargo issued by the Russian government during / due to a drought and heat wave (Welton, ).As consumers in many countries are more dependent on food imports Cited by: Climate data and seasonal climate forecasting tools.
Long term climate records, the SOI phase system 26 and a hindcast from the operational Australian seasonal climate forecasting system (POAMA-2 Cited by: Corn and Sorghum Exports Boosted by Higher Production Forecasts. U.S. corn production is raised to billion bushels, based on a national average yield of bushels per acre, according to the National Agricultural Statistic Service’s (NASS) August Crop Production report.
Domestic use, exports, and ending stocks are also raised for / In crop production attack of pests and diseases are the two major aspects which need consideration.
Forecasts of crop productivity, previous to harvest are needed for assorted policy agreements relating to distribution, storage, rating, marketing, import-export, etc., pests and diseases are one of the key elements of the reduction in crop yield.
Drought is a frequent occurrence in the Northwest Province of South Africa, and it appears to be strongly influenced by El NiÃ±o-Southern Oscillation events. The South African Weather Services produce long-term seasonal climate forecasts for 3 and 6 mo in advance that could allow crop and livestock farmers to plan anticipated wet or dry seasons.
We describe a simple economic model linked to. Olive oil is a major economic resource of the Mediterranean region. Olive crop management can be improved by models that forecast the variable reproductive biology of olive tree.
However, the processes controlling olive harvest are complex on large scales. Here, we study the parameters that influence olive fruit production for developing accurate forecasting models. Based on current rainfall deficits and the forecast, rainfall in western South Sudan is most likely to be near average.
In eastern South Sudan, based on current basin excess rainfall in rivers and catchments, above-average soil moisture, and the above-average rainfall forecast, there is a high likelihood of flooding.

Evaluating weather and climate impacts on global crop production Tom Walsh, Weather Research Manager—Agriculture, Lanworth Commodities Research and Forecasts, Thomson Reuters Chicago, Illinois 40th Annual Climate Diagnostics and Prediction Workshop 29 October Anthropogenic climate change will affect the agricultural sector more directly than many others because of its direct dependence on weather (Porter et al ).The nature and magnitude of these impacts depends both on the evolution of the climate system, as well as the relationship between crop yields and weather.
Our review of 99 ecological forecasts to inform biodiversity management in Australia, revealed that terrestrial biodiversity conservation research focuses on long‐term predictions of up to ‐years.
Crop models integrated with seasonal climate forecasts provide a means of translating forecasts of seasonal climate anomalies into forecasts of production impacts. The nature of the decision determines the appropriate spatial scale and lead-time of crop forecast information.
The starting point for the Climate Prediction Center, the home of the official U.S. climate outlooks. Popular products: El Nino/La Nina Advisories, U.S. Hazards Assessment and Drought Assessment.
The Mahalanbois National Crop Forecast Center (India) issues crop production forecasts for the }µv Ç[ ]PZ ui} } In terms of time: Long term or current AGMIP seeks to improve agricultural models in light of the medium- and long term effects of climate change on crop yields.
Crop yield forecasts and crop production estimates are necessary at EU and Member State level to provide the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) decision makers with timely information for rapid decision-making during the growing season. Estimates of crop production are also useful in relation to trade, development policies and humanitarian assistance linked to food security.
The World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) is prepared and released by the World Agricultural Outlook Board (WAOB). The report is released monthly, and provides annual forecasts for U.S. and world wheat, rice, coarse grains, oilseeds, and cotton.
The report also covers U.S. production of sugar, meat, poultry, eggs, and milk. A new report warns Kern County agriculture will face tough challenges in the decades ahead as climate change makes irrigation water scarcer and weather conditions more variable and intense.
USDA Agricultural Projections to by Erik O'Donoghue, James Hansen, and David Stallings USDA's year projections for the food and agriculture sector cover major agricultural commodities, agricultural trade, and aggregate indicators of the U.S. farm sector, such as farm income. Linking dynamic seasonal climate forecasts with crop simulation for maize yield prediction in semi-arid Kenya.
Agricultural and Forest Meteorology – Hansen, J. W., Marx, S. and Weber, E. ( a).Even if improvements occur in the future, uncertainties in the forecasts could suggest that crop predictions based only on a single set of forecast variables would be of little value.
The known uncertainties will probably require that the crop models be run a number of times with various weather inputs, ranging around the predicted values. Based on an analysis of cereal crop production data in OND seasons with similar climatic conditions during the to period, crop losses were greater than 20 .
