Abstract

The predictions for warmer springs due to climate change could lead to earlier sowing of potato crops. There is also the possibility of double cropping in some areas. However, crops will likely need more irrigation to cope with the reduction in summer rainfall. These potential changes in growing practice have the potential to increase the risk of Potato Cyst Nematode (Globodera pallida and G. rostochiensis) damage and populations. Using day degree accumulation models with current and projected future climates has demonstrated the potential for multiple generations a season, particularly if crops are sown earlier. This has implications for land suitable for seed production, and earlier cyst hatching could offset the benefits of earlier planting.
