Author(s):

Abstract:
Agriculture in India depends mainly on rainfall and it is highly vulnerable to vagaries of climate change its distribution. In modem agriculture, observations of the physical and biological variables in the environment are essential in agricultural meteorology. Without quantitative data, agro meteorological planning, forecasting, research and services cannot properly assist agricultural producers to survive and to meet the ever-increasing demands for food, fodder and agricultural by products. Hence detailed observations/monitoring and real-time dissemination of meteorological information, quantification by advanced instruments, remote-sensing (radar and satellites), and derived indices and operational services are essential to take agrometeorological decisions in the planning of agricultural operations for better and sustainable crop yields. Similarly, in order to adapt the agricultural system to increased weather variability the information should be well-organized, customary produced and coordinated dissemination of this information linked with agromet advisory services are essential.
