Agrometeorology Principles and Applications of Climate Studies in Agriculture

Harpal S. Mavi (Author) Graeme J. Tupper (Author)
Synopsis Agrometeorology is an interdisciplinary holistic science. It cuts across scientific disciplines and bridges physical and biological sciences. It has numerous applications in agricultural resource utlization and management and has progressed rapidly both in content and applications. Currently, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, much research work has been published in scientific journals on different themes of agrometeorology, but few books are yet available in which agrometeorological principles, techniques, and applications have been presented in a systematic manner. The increasing utility of the subject, with an ample availability of literature that lies scattered in journals of various scientific disciplines, demands quality books in which the entire subject matter is dealt with in an appropriate sequence. This book is a step toward that objective-to make available a text and reference book in agrometeorology.
