Pipeline for quantification of climate risk on crop productivity of dominant soil types in Queensland, under future climate change scenarios

This project aims to establish a pipeline that quantifies climate risks on crop productivity for dominant soil types in Queensland under future climate change scenarios. By integrating Earth observations and a process-based agricultural systems model (APSIM), the project will evaluate crop performance over time, analyze emerging impacts on agronomic practices, and quantify climate risks through scenario modeling based on dominant crops and soil types. This will allow the evaluation of climate risks and development of targeted management interventions to mitigate the impact of climate change on crop production.
