Crop models underestimate climate change impact on global rice production

A paper recently published in Nature Scientific Reports contends that crop models provide inaccurate estimates of rice yield projections under climate change scenarios due to biases of predicted phenology. This could mean projections for rice yield and supply may fall below expected levels and may not be enough to provide for rice consumers, which comprise half of the global population. Likewise, rice producers may not achieve their expected yield if the crop models used were inaccurate.
