The dataset described includes second bias corrected daily weather data using ground-based weather data and simulated crop growth data under potential and water-limited potential conditions for 109 sites across ten countries in SSA including Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia. Whereas the weather data covers all sites, the simulated growth data for the four crops (maize, millet, sorghum, wheat) covers subsets of the sites depending on the geographic distribution of cultivation areas for the given crop. The stations can represent 65% of the harvested area for maize, 90% for millet, 83% for sorghum, and 59% for wheat the four crops together can represent 72% of the total harvested area in those countries. The data covers three time periods: historical (1995-2014), 2030 (2020-2039), and 2050 (2040-2059).
