Seasonal climate and crop forecasts for agricultural risk management

Currently, the global climate models (GCMs) are the best available scientific tool to simulate the response of the global climate system to a change in atmospheric composition. However, the problem for local agricultural applications is that these are in a resolution of 100 to 300 km. From there, the necessity to use dynamic Regional Climate Models (RCM) whose resolution can go up to 10 km resolution and which can depict regional effects and teleconnection patterns (processes that take place over long distances).
