Over the coming decades, the Northwest is projected to see warmer winters, longer growing seasons, and more growing degree days each year. Irrigation needs show the median amount of irrigation water requirement, in inches, across the year timeframe. John Abatzoglou and I developed climate suitability models for five perennial specialty crops: almonds, apples, blueberries, cherries, and grapes. That is, field-scale reality may vary from the model results because of the resolution of the input climate data. In order to assess how climate change may shift where the climate is suitable for growing specialty crops in the coming decades, Dr. Climate change is also projected to impact California specialty crop production Lobell et al.
