In the semi-arid regions of Austria and Czech Republic a further increase of droughts or negative water balance will have serious consequences for agricultural crop production, as already indicated by climate warming. In this project these developments will be simulated for several climate scenarios by application of crop models and potential adaptation measures will be evaluated.
