This project is a collaboration between German and Australian research organisations and has three main objectives:

  • Assess the climate and soil data aggregation effects on crop yield and irrigation water requirement across several environments.
  • Investigate how input and output data aggregation affected simulated rainfed and irrigated yield and irrigation water requirement variability.
  • Determine and quantify the main drivers of rainfed and irrigated yield variability under historical and future climate scenarios using a multi-model and sensitivity analysis approach.
