AICRP on Agrometeorology
The Major Objectives of the Project are:
To study the agricultural climate in relation to crop planning and assesment of crop production potentials in different agroclimatic regions.
To establish crop-weather relationships for the major rainfed and irrigated crops in different agroclimatic regions.
To evaluate the different techniques of modification of crop microclimate for improving the water use efficiency and productivity of crops.
To study the influence of weather on the incidence and spread of pests and diseases of field crops.
