This book entitled Agrometeorology and Contingent Crop Planning is written to serve a text / reference / guide book for the students of agriculture agricultural meteorology agronomy veterinary soil conservation agricultural engineering-farm machinery and power and field practitioners. The book fills the need for an up-to-date comprehensive text on Increase the Crop Production by controlling the physical environment and more accurate forecasting for the students at under graduate and post graduate levels. Forecasting may be of weather it may be the predictions of crop yield and quality or it may the estimation of livestock production and climatic hazards. The control of the physical environment consists in preventing frost growing windbreaks adopting flood control measures controlling temperature and humidity in livestock barns. Contingent Crop Planning for different aberrant weather situations like flood drought cyclone hail storm land slide heat and cold waves epidemic out breaks and industrial hazards should be taken up in appropriate time to increase the crop production minimizing the loss or damage for adopting alternate methods or techniques for management.
This book will be of immense use in imparting knowledge on the basic principles and applied aspects of the Agricultural meteorology Natural Disasters and its Management and Contingent Crop Planning for increasing Crop Production through the greenhouse and adopting modern scientific agricultural practices for students teachers scientists extension workers and professionals engaged in agricultural development.
This book contains 18 chapters which include Introduction Agricultural Meteorology Factors Affecting Crop Production Systems of Crop Production Climate and Crops Crop Ecology Agro-Forestry and Social Forestry Dry land Agriculture Cropping Pattern in Irrigated and Rainfed Conditions Farming Systems Organic Farming Precision Farming Bio-conservation of the Environment Natural Disasters and its Management Contingent Crop Planning Crop Production in Greenhouse Agricultural Technology Future Guideline and Conclusion with adequate references. Each chapter is brief comprehensive and full-fledged with respect to technical information.
