Engenharia Ambiental : Pesquisa e Tecnologia , 2009,
Abstract: The main objective of this work is to analyze the possible impacts on areas considered favorable for soybean cultivation in the state of Tocantins, for the current scenarios and under the expected climatic changes deriving from global warming for soils of type 1 (sandy texture), type 2 (medium texture) and type 3 (loamy texture). The simulations of the decennial climatic water balances were obtained by using the software SARRAZON. An increase of 1.8oC in the mean temperature (scenario B1 - IPCC (2007)) was considered for such purpose, as well as a precipitation decrease of 10%. The results showed that for type 1 soils (low water availability), the favorable areas (low climatic risk) decreased from 268,719.98 km2 to 33,550.19 km2 for a sowing indication of November 15, representing a reduction of 88%. For soils of types 2 and 3, considering the indication of the same sowing date, the reduction percentages were 8.1% and 5.5%, respectively.
