Impact of climate change on development phases of winter rice in Bangladesh
Impact of climate change on development phases of rice is one of the major concern issues due to yield reduction. In the present study, development phases of winter rice (boro rice) of BR3 and BR14 varieties for the years 2008, 2030, 2050 and 2070 have been simulated for 12 major rice growing Agro-Ecological Zones (AEZs) of Bangladesh using DSSAT model. Available data on soil and hydrologic characteristics of these locations, and typical crop management practices for boro rice were used. The weather data required for the model were generated for the selected years and for the selected locations using the regional climate model PRECIS.
