Novel methods of yield stability

Hauptinhalt der Seite


PlanSmart Team

Climate change will make weather conditions more unpredictable. Therefore, the reliability of crop or fodder yields become increasingly important for farmers.

However, guidelines how to best quantify yield stability are still missing. Authors Reckling et al. reviewed methodological issues for yield stability assessment. Using data from long-term field experiments, they also provided practical examples and solutions. They recommend a combination of multiple approaches and a consistent and transparent use of stability methods. Their guidelines will help to better quantify yield stability, and to design stable cropping systems that are better adapted to a changing climate.
