Abstract

Crop productivity varies each year on account of several factors. Climate variability is one factor. How much of the variability in crop yields is explained by climate variations is important for stabilizing future food production. Using gridded long-term climate and crop statistics we tracked-13, 500 political units globally and found that roughly a third of the variation in yields in maize, rice, wheat and soybeans, globally was explained by climate variability.
