Risks & uncertainties in agricultural production system due to increasing climatic variability & weather extremes have become prime cause of global food insecurity. Sharing agro meteorological knowledge among researchers, policy makers, industry & farmers to learn from each other, Identify technologies/practices & develop roadmap for risk Management.

Considering urgent need of,

  • The Association of Agro meteorologists (AAM) has organized 3 day International Symposium on “Advances in Agro meteorology for Managing Climatic Risks of Farmers” (INAGMET-2019) at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi (India).

  • It is jointly organized with India Meteorological Department, Indian Centre of Agricultural Research (ICAR) -Indian Agricultural Research Institute & Jawaharlal Nehru University.

  • Symposium will bring together global experience on advances in weather & climate predictions, understanding impacts of climate change & variability on agriculture & sharing & cataloguing experiences of global meteorological & agricultural communities on effective interventions & promising technologies for adaptation & mitigation as well as identifying areas for future research & collaboration as per requirements of farming community.

The Themes of Symposium,

  • Weather & Climate Services for Agriculture

  • Monsoon Variability & Predictability

  • Climate Variability & Change: Projections, Impacts & interventions for agro eco systems

  • Agro meteorological information & Geospatial Decision Support Systems

  • Risk transfer: Weather & Crop Insurance

  • Post-harvest Management & agricultural marketing

  • Biotic & Abiotic Stress Management in Agriculture

  • Perspectives of Agro meteorological advisories

  • Crop Modelling & Forecasting

  • Water Cycle & Water Use Efficiency for Agriculture

  • Industry Interface for Expanding Agro meteorological Services

  • Interventions for Livestock, Poultry & Fisheries Management


  • Depending on level of development, roughly 20 to 80 % of inter-annual variability in yields stems from variability of weather through either direct physiological stresses or through indirect stresses, like pests & diseases.

  • Agricultural production systems are controlled by environmental conditions & farm Management.

  • The resilience of agricultural systems can be achieved through climate sensitive policies & actions.

  • To provide platform for interactions among professionals, scientists, policy makers & other social groups to share knowledge & experience on various aspects related to thrust areas of agro meteorology by INAGMET-2019.

  • 450 delegates in different field of Agriculture especially Agro meteorology from nearly 100 institutions acrosscountry & also from abroad are participating.

  • While weather & agricultural scientists will roll out recent advances in their respective fields, session for Industry will be special attraction to jointly work out road map for accelerating agribusinesses & empowering of farmers in backdrop of doubling farmer’s income.
