Predicting climate change impacts on sugarcane production at sites in Australia, Brazil and South Africa using the Canegro model * [Full subscriber]

Future climate change is expected to have important consequences for sugarcane production, and reliable predictions of crop response to climate change are necessary to plan adaptation strategies. The objective of this study was to assess the use of global climate models (GCMs) and a crop simulation model for predicting climate change impacts on sugarcane production. The Canegro model was used to simulate growth and development of sugarcane crops under typical management conditions at three sites (irrigated crops at Ayr, Australia; rainfed crops at Piracicaba, Brazil and La Mercy, South Africa) for current and three future climate scenarios. The baseline scenario…
