Description

Weather and Agriculture presents the major principles involved in the integrated study of weather and agriculture.
The book is divided into three sections. Part I discusses the aspects of environmental factors and their validity and measurement. Part II presents a selection of the weather hazards and their relation to agricultural practice. The last section focuses on productivity, the efficient maximization of available resources towards economic ends. Meteorologists, agriculturists, and pedologists will find the book invaluable.
