A study was conducted during year 2018-19 to know the productiveness and functionality of Agro-met Advisories Services (AAS) and measured by the social economics benefit by adopting it at Anand district which falls under the semi-arid zone of Gujarat state. For this analysis, two groups of farmers were selected namely, farmers who adopted the Agro-met Advisories Services regularly for their field operation and the other group of farmers who were unaware of Agro-met Advisories Services (Non-AAS farmers). The data were collected by using questionnaires’ from 110 farmers among that 70 are associated with Agro-met Advisories Services (AAS) and 40 farmers who were not associated with AAS. The farmers who adopted the Agro met Advisories services in their day to day agricultural activities have earned extra benefits like 80.91 %, 77.27%, 79.09%, 79.09% and 66.36% in crop growth, plant protection, irrigation, income and adverse weather issues related to animal husbandry, respectively. Thus, the application of Agro-met Advisory Bulletin based on current technology weather forecast is a beneficial mode for doubling the production of crop and income of farmers. This study will help the planners, executors, researcher’s and administrators to know that in which segment of the agriculture farmer’s research and policy can be formulated in future.
