Book Description: New policies must be adopted under climate change conditions to secure sustainability of agricultural crop production. Despite the proved reliability of present climate and crop-growth modeling tools for climate risk assessments, they have been not been noticeably applied for supporting agricultural decision-making in practice.

Scale, context, and decision making in agricultural adaptation to climate variability and change Article (PDF Available) in Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change 4(2) The history of agricultural system modeling is characterized by a number of key events and drivers that led scientists from different disciplines to develop and use models for different purposes ().Some of the earliest agricultural systems modeling were done by Earl Heady and his students to optimize decisions at a farm scale and evaluate the effects of policies on the Cited by: Abstract. The impact of climate variability is expected to have significant impacts on crop production in Sub-Saharan Africa. Being a region with high climate vulnerability, the quantification and understanding of the extent and rate of impact of climate variability on crop productivity is highly : Ephraim Sekyi-Annan, Ernest Nti Acheampong, Nicholas Ozor. around"major"trends,"and"emerging"approaches"to"improvedataand"tools"for"decision[making."

This article reviews progress in understanding climate variability and change and how such understanding might better contribute to decision processes and . Seasonal and longer-term climate variability lead to significant economic, environmental and social risks that might be mitigated through appropriate management of agricultural, forest and water resources in the southeastern USA. Climate extremes, such as drought, flood, freezing temperatures and hurricanes can be predicted with increasing levels of skill. This book deals with one of the major challenges facing human society and its governments, climate change and variability. The principal objective of the book is to explore how agricultural production through the actions primarily of farmers, including peasant farmers, adapt to these changing circumstances, what the limitations of adaptation are, how the process of adaptation Brand: Springer International Publishing.
