Changes in crop phenology under climate change

What is it about?

Assessment of changes in timing of sowing, flowering and maturity of cereal crops in Northern and Central Europe under climate change

Why is it important?

Timing of flowering and maturity were projected to advance by 1–3 weeks. The changes were largest for grain maize and smallest for winter wheat, and they were generally largest in the western and northern part of the domain. There were considerable differences in predicted timing of sowing, flowering and maturity between the two climate model projections applied.
