Weather-Climate Forecasting System for Early Warning in Crop Protection

Authors(1) :-Bhavesh Kataria

Weather and Climate forecasting is the application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a given location. This provide occurrence or change in severity of plant diseases. At the field scale, these systems are used by growers to make economic decisions about disease treatments for control. Often the systems ask the grower a series of questions about the susceptibility of the host crop, and incorporate current and forecast weather conditions to make a recommendation. Forecasting system provide information about plants disease which happen due to Weather and Climate changes and it happen in such a fashion that disease can occur and cause economic losses.
