             abstract = "Many natural systems are being affected by regional climate 
                         change. The hypothesis of this article is that regional climate 
                         change may affect the profitability and productivity of corn, 
                         which may require changes in the optimum de - sign of drainage 
                         systems in the future. Our aim is to determine the effects of 
                         regional climate change on the relationship between drain spacing, 
                         corn productivity, and profitability and to derive estimates of 
                         productivity and profitability until the year 2100 using different 
                         future scenarios of climate simulation (CNTRL, HIGH, LOW, and 
                         MIDI). Our goal is to opti - mize drainage system designs that 
                         account for changes in climate using different drain spacing and 
                         types of soil in Campinas, Brazil. This study also evaluates the 
                         performance of the Eta regional climate model to simulate 
                         precipitation and air temperature for the study area. 
                         Evapotranspiration calculated with the Thornthwaite method (using 
                         observed and simu - lated data) and precipitation data were used 
                         as input for the SISDRENA model, which evaluates the performance 
                         of onedimensional drainage systems. As output, the SISDRENA model 
                         provides information about drainage system design and indexes of 
                         water stress, productivity, and profitability. The general 
                         conclusion is that the Eta model is a good tool for studying the 
                         effects of climate change in the region because the simulations 
                         approximated the observed data. All sets of analyzed years 
                         indicated that a spacing of 20 m between drains was best, 
                         producing the highest average productivity and profitability. Clay 
                         loam soils tended to have higher productivity and profitability 
                         than clay soils, which translates to greater profit for the 
                         producer. However, the temperature and precipitation variations 
                         predicted by the Eta model showed that corn profitability may be 
                         reduced, changing the potential productivity in Campinas,
