About the book

Agrometeorology involves meteorology, hydrology, agrology and biology; it requires a multidisciplinary range of data for operational applications and research. Current concerns with the sustainability of agroecosystems in different sectors of agriculture have heightened awareness for the careful use of natural resources. For proper and efficient use of soils and plant/animal genetic material, knowledge of the role of climate is an essential. A more inclusive definition of agricultural meteorology deals with water, heat, air and related biomass development, above and below ground, in the agricultural production environment, including the impact of pests and diseases that also depend on these factors. The use of remote sensing (RS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to develop crop inventories helps decision-makers and planners on best practices for agricultural management with the prediction. The data analysis of crop details using various geospatial technologies fills in gaps in statistical agriculture research and provides reliable, replicable and efficient methods for generating agricultural statistics.

This book aims to help the scientists in field of agrometeorology to better understand the applications of their subject matter to various research activities for agricultural development. Thus, the book will be useful to scientists and planners engaged in regional and land-use planning, soil and water conservation, risk analysis of climate hazards, harvest forecasts, and the ecological and economic implications of climate change.

This book is undoubtedly essential for students of Agricultural Sciences, Environmental Scientists, Agrometeorologists and Progressive farmers.
