Scenario Analysis

Weather/Climate Change

Weather and climate are popular topics of interest with concerns over global warming and the potential climate changes.  Our model is capable of analyzing the impacts on global agricultural supply, demand and prices given alternative yield scenarios based on climate change.  In the past we have combined biophysical plant growth models along with regional soil characteristics and weather projections to emulate yield impacts of climate change and subsequent impacts on crop production, commodity prices, demand, and farm income.
