Europe, Set of agroclimatic indicators for the identification of abiotic stresses (Base of the subsetting tool), for the following crops: Bean, cassava, banana, wheat, maize, potato, sweet potato, rice, barley, sorghum, pearl millet, cowpea, yam,…
The purpose for which these crop-specific indicators were created is to group or characterize the different accessions available in the Genesys database, considering the climatic data from where they were collected. For this, it is necessary to carry out a characterization of zones based on these specific ones per crop, which are part of evaluating when crops are exposed to heat stress.
Methodology: To carry out the calculation of these agroclimatic indicators, daily data of the following climatic variables were used at a resolution of 5 km: Maximum and minimum temperatures (source: CHIRTS). The indicators were calculated for each month during a period of 33 years (1983 – 2016). With the above, the indicators were calculated per month during 1983 -2016 and finally, in order to summarize the calculated indicators, an aggregation of data was carried out, calculating the average in the following time periods: 1983 – 2016, 1990 – 2016, 1995 – 2016, 2000 – 2016, 2005 – 2016, 2010 – 2016.
