The Climate, Disaster and Development Journal (CDDJ)

The Climate, Disaster and Development Journal (CDDJ), an open access platform for peer-reviewed papers, released a new article on “Simulating Impacts of El Niño and Climate Change on Corn Yield in Isabela, Philippines”: https://doi.org/10.18783/cddj.v002.i01.a04

 

Some of the key highlights include:

 

  • Crop simulations showed 7% to 13% reductions in growing cycles and 17% to 41% reductions in mean yields.
  • The 11% to 13% reductions in wet yields were due to effects of rising temperatures than carbon dioxide fertilization impacts.
  • Projected rainfall patterns showed wet months becoming wetter and dry months becoming drier.
  • The length of growing seasons will be reduced from 11 months to 8 to 9 months.
  • Advancing planting dates and improving irrigation access can help mitigate heat and water stress from climate change.

 

Feel free to disseminate this announcement to your peers and networks. The full issue (Vol2, Issue1) will be released soon.
