- Climate Change and Agriculture in Europe provides a thorough assessment of the potential impacts oc climate change on agriculture and horticulture in Europe. The study had four main research initiatives: to compile a database of relevant environmental data and state-of-the-art climate scenarios for Europe; to assess the impact of climate change (namely elevated carbon dioxide and altered weather) on crop development, growth, yield and yield quality through controlled experiments and simulation models; to evaluate appropriate farm-level adaptive responses and prospects for sustainability; and to develop a geographic information system for climate change impact assessment for European agriculture that integrates the project components and span apatial and temporal scales.
