This publication presents the crop modeling research conducted over the
period 1989-1992 for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Climate
Change Division project "Implications of Climate Change for International
Agriculture: Global Food Production, Trade and Vulnerable Regions." The
central aim of the study was to provide an assessment of potential climate
change impacts on world crop production, including quantitative estimates of
yield and water-use changes of major crops. The crops modeled were wheat,
rice, maize and soybean.

The study assessed the implications of climate change for world crop yields
taking into account: a) uncertainty in the level of climate change expected, b)
physiological effects of carbon dioxide, and c) different adaptive responses.
