Abstract
The approach of identifying the potential weather based cropping risks in selected agricultural production regions by using adequate agroclimatic indicators will be applied in our study. To identify regionally relevant risks a data base on documented and measured crop specific responses (i.e. yield loss) and economic damages on adverse weather conditions will be established. Reported damages will be related to measured weather conditions (statistical screening on significant relationships) and be expressed in calibrated crop specific indicators subject to available data. Further, an indicator model of combined abiotic and biotic weather related risks will be established and applied on current conditions and ensemble climate change scenarios in two main crop production regions in Austria. In order to develop regionalized tailored farm adaptation measures the indicator model will demonstrated in combination with a bio-economic farm model at two case study regions.
