However, there may be options for adapting to such changes, since Olesen et al. (2012) found that at higher mean temperatures in Europe, farmers would be growing varieties of cereals with higher thermal requirements of both vegetative and reproductive phases. 3 shows a smaller response of spring barley to higher temperatures, because this crop can be sown earlier in spring, thus maintaining a productive growing season. In contrast, simulated yields increase for a grass crop, which represents crops with a nondeterminate growth pattern, where the yields depend on the total duration of the 20 15 10 5 0 –5 –10 –15 –20 –2 0 2 4 Fig.
