Gis based analysis of suitability of climate for cotton cultivation in Mali

Cover Page

Abstract


Analysis of suitability of meteorological conditions in Mali for cotton cultivation was conducted. It has been determined that climatic conditions severely limit land usage for the cultivation of cotton in Mali. Climatic restrictions are not present only at 4% of the territory. Changing climatic conditions over the past 10 years are expressed only in a small shift of the start and end of the growing season of cotton to earlier dates and don’t affect the results of suitability analysis.
