Needs for agrometeorological solutions to farming problems

Last modified September 26, 2008 09:25

Here we have discussions on problems for which operational solutions with agrometeorological components are highly required, but not yet or incompletely available, or available but not applied. Here pre-publication information may be exchanged and experiences swapped on possible services, research, training/extension and policies related to food security, on-farm and market related. [Discuss items for this section with the President or the Vice-president.]

Does urban agriculture use too much water? — Last modified December 02, 2015 09:09
Urban agriculture is a growing trend, and it's not uncommon to see vegetable plots in city parks, and salad greens spilling out of urban window-boxes. But producing food takes a tremendous amount of water: globally more than 70% of our water use is for agriculture. Could the trend for urban agriculture be putting a strain on city water supplies?
Pollen and clouds: April flowers bring may showers? — Last modified May 29, 2015 09:59
The main job of pollen is to help seed the next generation of trees and plants, but a new study shows that the grains might also seed clouds.
Climate change could boost area suitable for double cropping — Last modified May 29, 2015 09:55
Double cropping – growing a second crop after harvesting a first – can bring farmers extra income. But in the northern US, the first autumn frosts limit the potential for planting soy after harvesting winter wheat, because they can damage the soy crop. Now, researchers have found that climate change could boost the production from this type of double cropping by 4–7% by 2100.
Heat and drought extremes likely to stress ecosystem productivity equally or more in a warmer, CO2 rich future — Last modified May 18, 2015 09:24
It is logical to expect that the impacts of today's heat and drought extremes are likely underestimates of what we can expect in the future with a high fossil emissions pathway, writes Christopher Williams
Private insurers may help farmers weather the storm — Last modified January 19, 2015 08:53
In a bid to protect farmers from erratic weather pattern, the government has invited private insurance companies, along with state-owned Agriculture Insurance Company of India (AIC), for providing various products relating to crop, weather and income insurance.

New insights into the origins of agriculture could help shape the future of food — Last modified January 12, 2015 09:07
Agricultural decisions made by our ancestors more than 10,000 years ago could hold the key to food security in the future, according to new research by the University of Sheffield.
