A History of Agrometeorology in I. R. of Iran — Last modified December 28, 2002 14:44
A review of the approval of the 1970 WMO (World Meteorological Organization) Congress shows that Iran, as a member of this international Organization, committed itself to take action towards establishment of Agrometeorology. Consequently, based on national needs, Iran established in 1975 an Agrometeorological section in the civil Meteorological Organization. For the first time ever in the history of this national Organization, it is taking measures to hold training courses in the field of Agrometeorology. Simultaneously, it is studying, on an expert basis, the entire country in order to identify agricultural regions for the purpose of setting up Agrometeorological stations.
