This book presents extensive information on practical Agrometeorology, including data acquisition techniques, instruments, and observation methods, along with precautions and solved examples. Written in a clear and concise manner, the book provides valuable and detailed information on the practical aspects of an agromet observatory, covering all major topics in this area.

The book is notable for its use of illustrative pictures that facilitate the understanding of fundamental meteorological parameters for students and other readers. Additionally, it includes 26 fully illustrated chapters on the installation of an agro-meteorological observatory, as well as the 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.

Furthermore, the book covers agrometeorological data analysis, upper air observations, and agro-meteorological data management, as well as a study of automatic-weather stations. It is an essential resource for anyone interested in practical Agrometeorology.
