By identifying specific monthly climate variables (mean daily temperature and precipitation) to which corn and soybean yield is sensitive, this study compares monthly regional General Circulation Model (GCM) predictions with the monthly climate variables to which corn and soybean yield is sensitive to predict crop yield under future climate. Given the regional GCM prediction for increased summer temperatures and summer drought, both corn and soybean yield will likely decrease under future climate conditions. This is likely to be most pronounced in the central and southern portions of Illinois. Additionally, given higher summer temperatures, the risk of summer drought is more pronounced
