Abstract:

Agricultural production depends upon many factors, of which weather is the major factor. Weather varies with space and time; hence, its forecast can help to minimize the farm losses through proper management of agricultural operations. The complete avoidance of all farm losses due to weather factor is not possible but it can be minimized to some extent by making adjustments through timely and accurate information of weather forecast. Weather forecast and weather based agro-met advisories help in increasing the economic benefit to the farmers by suggesting them the suitable management practices according to the weather conditions. A study was, therefore, undertaken on adaptation of agro-met advisory bulletin and economic impact of agro-met advisory services for maize and rice during Kharif 2015. For assessing the impacts of agro-met advisory services, users of agro-met advisory services (AAS) and non-users of agro-met advisory services (non AAS) were selected from adopted NICRA villages. Results showed that the farmers, who followed the agro-met advisories, are able to reduce the input cost and increases net profit as compared to the non AAS farmers in Maize and rice. This might be resulted due to the crop management done by the farmers as per to agro-met advisory bulletins. Thus, the application of agro-met advisory bulletin, based on current and forecast weather is a useful tool for enhancing the production and income of farmers.
