Abstract:

The importance of Gramin Krishi Mausam Sewa is well recognized in present agricultural scenario which needs sustainable development to feed rapidly growing population of the nation. Weather based agriculture is highly beneficial for the farmers of India to sustain their profession for earning bread and butter. The advisory helps them to optimize the use of available resources for maximization of their profit. When the forecast is proved correct it gives benefit to the farmers, if it is not so, then there is hardly any loss to the farmers. The issuance of 'Forecast based Agromet Advisory Bulletin from AMFU Pundibari has been continuing since June '2005. It is in fact a good platform to provide the Advisories from the scientists of different disciplines of agriculture, with a special emphasis on weather based interaction of various crop, their diseases, pests etc. In this way Gramin Krishi Mausam Sewa provides invaluable services to the farming community of Cooch Behar, Jalpaiguri and North Dinajpur districts under Terai region of West Bengal which experiences sometimes abnormal weather conditions i.e. very high rainfall, intermittent drought spell during rainy season etc. Most of the farmers practice rainfed agriculture in this area. Therefore, this project is very much essential to cater the location specific needs of the local farmers.
