The present book provides materials on all aspect of practical Agrometeorology of data acquisition techniques, instruments and method of observations with precautions and solved examples. Written in a simple and lucid manner the book contains very useful and detailed information on practical aspects of agromet observatory and covers all major practical aspects of agromet observatory.
Highlights of the book are: o Is prepared with a series of pictures that illustrate the principles of meteorological parameters which are fundamental to the understanding of the subject by students and other readeo 26 fully illustrated s on installation of agro-meteorological observatory, measurement of rainfall and snowfall, air and soil temperature, humidity, wind, solar radiation, cloudiness, evaporation, evapotranspiration, sunshine duration, dew, pressure, photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), soil moisture content, leaf area index, transpiration, crop canopy temperature and computation of heat indices with solved examples. o s on agrometeorological data analysis, measurement of upper air observations, agro-meteorological data management and study of automatic-weather station.
