Author Guidelines

General

The Journal of Agrometeorology accepts high-quality original research papers dealing with all aspects of the agrometeorology of field and horticultural crops, including micrometeorology, crop weather interactions, crop models, climate change and impact on agriculture, aero-biometeorology, agroclimatology, remote sensing applications in agriculture, mountains meteorology,  hydrometeorology, climatic risk and management in agriculture, climate impact on animals, fisheries and poultry, yield forecasting and operational agrometeorology.

The research articles should be based on new findings, approaches, methods, etc preferably with multi-locations, years, seasons data on contemporary topics in the English language only. The manuscripts are likely to be rejected at the initial screening itself if they are not prepared as per guidelines or out of the scope of Agricultural Meteorology. Articles are published after peer review and approval of the Editor(s).
