Abstract
Climate change may have detrimental effects on crop farming in Global economy and according to the IPCC, 2014 (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), the impacts of climate change will be more vigorous in the coming years. Research substantiated that poor economies are more vulnerable to climate hazards (e.g. temperature and precipitation) compared to rich economies. This study aims to investigate non-linear climatic effect on crop yields involving a panel of 8 African countries groups covering the period 1990-2021. The result of the empirical non-linear model is estimated by using the panel regression estimation methods (Pooled Ordinary Least Square, Fixed Effect and Random Effect), detects the negative role of temperature in crop production. Precipitation is initially beneficial for crop production activities, beyond a threshold point it reduces the output of crop.
