Myanmar Wetland Irrigated Rice Yield (Baseline 1961-1990 vs 2080 projection)

This is a comparison of two FAO/GAEZ datasets (Food and Agriculture Organization/Global Agro-Ecological Zones), agro-climatically attainable yield for low input level irrigated Indica wetland rice (tons/ha) for baseline period (1961-1990) and for future period (2080s) under model HadCM3 and scenario A1FI. Source: Global Agro-ecological Zones (GAEZ v3.0). IIASA, Laxenburg, Austria and FAO, Rome, Italy. Available for download at Units are in Tons/ha. Negative numbers means there is lower yield in 2080.
