Indicator

Agrophenology

Description

  • Flowering of several perennial crops has advanced by about two days per decade in recent decades.
  • Changes in timing of crop phenology are affecting crop production and the relative performance of different crop species and varieties.
  • The shortening of crop growth phases in many crops is expected to continue. The shortening of the grain filling phase of cereals and oilseed crops can be particularly detrimental to yield.
