Abstract

In this section we simulate the effects of various climatic scenarios on maize yields using a dynamic crop production model, applied in conjunction with data that describe the production environment of the districts of Kirinyaga, Embu and Machakos in Kenya. An analysis of the climate characteristics is presented below. These data, together with soil characteristics, are essential input for the production model. The model is described briefly and the potential maize yields generated for different climatic scenarios are reported.
