Prediction of seasonal climate-induced variations in global food production


This article presents a global assessment of the reliability of crop failure hindcasts for major crops (wheat, rice, soybean, maize). The use of seasonal climatic forecasts to predict crop failures will be useful for monitoring global food production and will encourage the adaptation of food systems to climatic extremes. The article can help in considering how crop failure predictions can be taken into account when planning national adaptation actions.
