About the book

Agrometeorology is a relatively young and emerging science. The beginnings of agrometeorological work came in the 20's of the past century, when agrometeorology was a working branch of climatology. Agrometeorology is a multidisciplinary science that examines the effects and impacts of weather and climate on crops, rangeland, livestock, and various agricultural operations.

Sustainability of agricultural production system can be achieved through efficient management of agro-climatic resources and crop microclimate modification. Each and every plant developmental phase is decided by meteorological parameters. The expression of full potential of every genotype has its optimum climatic requirement. Therefore, understanding of meteorological parameters and their consequences on every stage of crop growth and on crop yield is prerequisite for researchers and farmers.

This book will also contain the information, which is useful for scientists and planners for food security to achieve UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2, 7, 13, 14 and 15.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marina Dusevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
