Abstract

This study was conducted to simulate the climate change impacts on potato production and evaluate the planting date and variety management as possible climate change adaptation strategies in Isfahan province, Iran. Two types of General Circulation Models (HadCM3 and IPCM4) and three scenarios (A1B, ...

Abstract

The net global warming potential (GWP) of a cropping system describes net exchanges of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4). Greenhouse gas intensity (GHGI) relates net GWP to productivity. The use of a barley cover crop was tested in a California vineyard from 2003 to 2010...

Abstract

The need for improved herbage yield and forage quality, on intensively managed grassland, in dairy farming systems, often results in land being brought into tillage, either by grassland reseeding or conversion to arable cropping (particularly maize (Zea mays L.) for silage). However, both options...

Abstract

Many studies have examined the impact of climatic variability on agricultural productivity, although an understanding of these effects on farmland values and their relationship to farmers' decisions to adapt and modify their land-use practices remains nascent in developing nations. We estimated the ...
