This book will be of great help to students, scientists, and research workers. It provides vast information on the importance, availability, and general use of meteorological data/services connected with the planning of agricultural investment and development projects. The authors have done a commendable job by collecting the latest information on existing meteorological scenarios for project implementation and future planning concerning additional investment in development projects. Many books and journals contain fragmented information on these topics, but the authors of this book have presented all the information under one umbrella.
This comprehensive book meets an increasing need for those interested in climate and weather, such as agricultural researchers, advisors, and policymakers. The authors use their international experience to apply climate and plant science principles to the practical management of agricultural systems—from the policy issue of drought assistance to managing pests in the field. The agrometeorology principles have never been more important as we manage agriculture that is productive and sustainable in a variable and changing climate. This book is valuable not only as a university text but also as a useful reference text for professionals involved in the interface between climate and agriculture.
