Services of agrometeorology and impacts of climate change/variability, as well as extreme weather events (soil irrigation, disease prediction, production estimation, etc)

Agrometeorology is an interdisciplinary field of knowledge with a more holistic approach than that of climatology or biology. The main scientific fields are atmospheric sciences (weather forecasting and modification) and earth sciences, which are focused on the natural environment (weather phenomena effects), hence it forms a combination of natural and biological sciences as well as an important link between them. Its interdisciplinary character has the advantage of understanding the interactions between the natural and biological worlds.

The hierarchical approach to agrometeorological services is presented below:

  • Formation of natural environment and biological reactions
  • Biological reactions interpretation
  • Agrometeorological forecasts
  • Agrometeorological services and strategies
