Designing agromet advisories for selected weather windows under automated weather based advisory system in Tamil Nadu – A case study
Keywords:Developing rice agromet advisories, selected weather window, automated weather advisory, prototype
Research work was undertaken at Agro Climate Research Centre, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University Coimbatore, with the objective of developing agromet advisories for rice crop for 54 independent selected weather windows (SWW) covering eight rice growing seasons/systems of Tamil Nadu. This was done to provide weather-based agromet advisory to the farming community. Weather sensitive rice agromet advisories were developed for its nine stages through group discussions based on rice crop sensitiveness to SWW. The available literature on interaction between rice crop and weather elements at their different threshold levels was also properly considered during this exercise. Proto-type were run for one block of Tamil Nadu and thus problems identified for seeking solutions.
