(A) LONG -TERM PROJECT 

 1)  All India Coordinated Research Project on  Agrometeorology 

  • To study the agricultural climate in relation to regional crop planning and assessment of crop production potentials.
  • To establish crop-weather relationships for all the major rainfed and irrigated crops.
  • To evaluate the different techniques of modification of crop microclimates for enhancing the water-use efficiency and productivity of crops.
  • To study the influence of weather on the incidence and spread of pests and diseases of field crops.
  • To provide agro-advisory support to farming communities.

 

2) Gramin Krishi Mausam Sewa, AMFU,Chatha

  • To provide location specific weather forecast and Agro-Meteorological Advisory Service (AAS) as per different climatic conditions and cropping patterns.
  • To implement an efficient outreach system so that the farmers receive weather based agro-advisories specific to their areas and crops on real time basis.
  • To set up operational arrangements for AAS involving extension and information disseminating agencies.
  • Agromet Field Unit (AMFU) operated at SKUAST-J,Chatha.
  • Agromet Field Unit (AMFU) operated at SKUAST-J, Tandwal, RARS,Rajouri.

B)      ADHOC PROJECTS



1) National Initiative on Climate Resilient Agriculture (NICRA)  

  • To enhance the resilience of Indian agriculture covering crops, livestock and fisheries to climatic variability and climate change through development and application of improved production and risk management technologies. 
  • To demonstrate site specific technology packages on farmers’ fields for adapting to current climate risks. 
  • To enhance the capacity of scientists and other stakeholders in climate resilient agricultural research and its application.

 

    2) Forecasting Agricultural Output using Space, Agrometeorology and Land based observations (FASAL)

  • To establish the relation between weather and crop growth, development and yield for maize, wheat and mustard.
  • To assess and establish the relationship between weather, field level management practices and land factors for crop yield forecasting.
  • To determine genetic coefficients for popular varieties of maize, wheat and mustard for running crop simulation models for crop yield forecasting
  • To issue multiple crop yield forecast for rice, maize and wheat in (Subtropical region) at mid season (F2) and pre-harvest stage (F3).
