Worsening climate conditions for maize in Africa

This article aims to predict the size of maize crops in West, East and Central Africa, and to emphasize the importance of including climate factors in such models. The findings show that climate variables can explain 28 percent of the variance in maize crops in these areas. Crop yields are projected to decline by 20 percent in a scenario with higher greenhouse gas emissions.
