Summary
Abstract: Datasets from a Major Crop Modeling Study contain projected country and regional changes in grain crop yields due to global climate change. Equilibrium and transient scenarios output from General Circulation Models (GCMs) with three levels of farmer adaptations to climate change were utilized to generate crop yield estimates of wheat, rice, coarse grains (barley and maize), and protein feed ...

Purpose: To provide an assessment of potential climate change impacts on world crop production, including quantitative estimates of yield changes of major food.
