Impact of variation in climatic factors on crop yield

Project by Prabhat Barnwal:

This study examines the effects of temperature and precipitation on mean and

variance of seasonal rice yield in Andhra Pradesh, India. Two distinct approaches are employed: stochastic production function and quantile regression. The findings suggest adverse impact of temperature rise on mean rice yield as well as its variability. Furthermore, quantile regression reveals that rice yield’s sensitivity to climate change differs significantly across the quantiles of yield distribution.
