Block level weather forecast
India Meteorological Department (IMD) implements Gramin Krishi Mausam Sewa (GKMS) scheme for the benefit of farming community at district level across the country. District Agromet Advisory Service (AAS) bulletins are issued bi-weekly in collaboration with various stakeholders. There is still a long way to go to enhance the service so as to satisfy the farmers at micro-level. Therefore, in order to strengthen the service to fulfill the needs of farming community, improvement is needed in terms of observations and seamless high resolution weather forecast. In order to give best possible services to the farmers, IMD started issuing block level forecast since 2013.
IMD is also venturing into generation of agromet advisories based on block level weather forecast. To view Block Level Forecast -
