Effects of possible climate modification on maize plant features have been evaluated by using the simulation model of Goudriaan for local climatic conditions and locally measured plant characteristics. Moderate climate modifications were hypothesized. According to the purpose of detecting local impacts of climate change, researches were made on the microclimate of maize canopies. In the energy transport of the plant stand, no shift has been experienced to the direction of the latent heat as it was expected because of the effect of warming up and decrease of precipitation. The changes of stomatal resistance and inside canopy air temperature suggested that the natural water supply will probably not cover the water demand of the plant, if the climate change is more intensive, therefore farmers must prepare to irrigated cultivation and to apply different agro-technical methods to save the water supplies of the ground.
