Agriculture and Forestry Sector study findings show that humid agro-climate zones will shift southwards, rendering areas of the north increasingly unsuitable for agriculture. For example in Kordofan Region millet production is predicted to decline between 15% and 62%, sorghum between 29% and 71% and gum Arabic between 25% to 30% during the. adshelp[at] The ADS is operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under NASA Cooperative Agreement NNX16AC86A.
resources and decision-making processes, with limited mobility in rural areas. It is thus important to identify gender-sensitive strategies that respond to these crises for women.9 A number of factors account for the discrepancy between women’s and men’s differentiated exposure and vulnerability to climate change risks. AgroClimas, a project of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) is seeking the answer to that problem. The project aims to bridge the gap between agro-climatic information generation and its users among farmers and decision-makers in public institutions. The answer, however, is not that simple.

In fact, geographical factors play a vital role in agricultural development, in spite of the technological and scientific development. The important factors influencing agriculture are as follows: 1.
Natural Factors: The natural factors that affect agriculture most are: (a) climate. Agricultural production is highly sensitive to weather and climate, which affect when farmers and land managers plant seeds or harvest crops.
These conditions also factor into decision-making. Get this from a library. Using seasonal climate forecasting in agriculture: a participatory decision-making approach. [R G Packham; A K S Huda; Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research.; University of Western Sydney.;] -- The challenge in using seasonal forecasting in agriculture is to assess and capture the potential benefits so that the well-being of people is improved in.

Book Description: New policies must be adopted under climate change conditions to secure sustainability of agricultural crop production.
Despite the proved reliability of present climate and crop-growth modeling tools for climate risk assessments, they have been not been noticeably applied for supporting agricultural decision-making in practice.

Climate Change and Agriculture: Impacts, Adoption, and Mitigation: /ch Increasing evidence shows that shifts in Earth's climate have already occurred and indicates that changes will continue in the coming years. This chapter is. The question of how to influence farmer decision-making behaviour has been the subject of much research for several decades.
In general, this research has focused on trying to encourage farmers to adopt tools, policy measures, or management practices, which researchers, extension workers, and agricultural organisations consider to be beneficial.

e) Personal factors like customs, attitude, awareness, personal capabilities and so on. One or more changes of the above categories in the environment around the farmer may cause imperfections in decision-making. The process of decision making, therefore, has to be dynamic so as to adjust in such changes.
iv) Decision Making Process. Assessing Environment-Climate Impacts in the Nile Basin for Decision-making: Needs for Using Global Tracers: /ch Assessing the environmental and climatic impacts in the Nile Basin is imperative for appropriate decision and policy making on national and regional levels.
Interactions among technology, decision making and climatic impacts. In order to aid climate adaptation and improve food security, we need to improve our understanding of the interactions among technology, farmer decision making and climatic impacts on cropping area and intensity as well as yield.
More informed decision-making by farmers that incorporates weather and climate information and forecasts is a strategy that would fall under technological developments to increase U.S. agriculture’s resilience to climate change. We examine U.S. agriculture using data from a survey of nearly corn farmers across the Midwest.
In this book, background information on climate change and why adaptation is needed in developing countries is provided in chapter II. The chapter also explains how the UNFCCC, which provides the basis for international action on climate change, is.
Environmental factors. These are physical factors and include climate, relief and soil. Climate. Temperature (minimum 6°C for crops to grow) and rainfall (at least mm to mm) influence the types of crops that can be grown, e.g. hot, wet tropical areas favour rice, while cooler, drier areas favour wheat.
Climate variability has created uncertainties in temperature, rainfall and wind patterns. As a result, rural people in countries like Nigeria whose main occupation or economic activity is agriculture, are faced with so many challenges in decision making with respect to their agricultural.

What strategies should farmers take in order to improve their resilience to climate change and increasingly frequent and severe pest and disease outbreaks?
How can they ensure that their livelihoods are protected, despite the uncertainty on the horizon? These are the questions on the lips of many producers around the world, as they face what [ ].The climatic factors are abiotic or non-living components of the environmental factors (outside of genetic factors) that affect plant growth and development.
They are elements of climate. There are other abiotic environmental factors, that is, topography and soil, which are treated in a separate page. The results of the study emphasised the importance of social and psychological factors in the decision making processes of farmers. Farmers are influenced by the behaviour of their peer group.
The literature shows that proficiently carrying out skilled farming improves both how farmers perceive themselves and how other farmers view them (Burton.
