Abstract:

Agrometeorological Field Unit (AMFU) disseminating agromet advisory bulletin (AAB) are embraced three parts viz., weather condition, crop information and weather based agro advisories. This study enlightens the qualitative and quantitative aspect and gaps between providers and end users of AAB. The AAB issued by 7 AMFU stations was collected for the period 5 years (2007-2011) from IMD, Pune and SAU’s of 7 states. The substantial variation in the format of issued AAB by all the stations was observed and formats are not found easily usable to print media, SMS through multimedia. The minimal number of advices observed based on weather and weather element based. The alert message not incorporated in AAB most of the AMFU’s except Parbhani and Sehor. Advice on post-harvest technology, processing of agricultural produce, marketing and transport was not observed in AAB. It is suggested that adopt pictographic and colourful format 1 or format 2, for commercialization of AAB through use of e-AAB, TV, internet, specialized App for widespread and usability, which are most useful weather smart agriculture technological tools that can minimise climatic risks and build a resilient agricultural production.
