Plant growth and development are primarily governed by
environmental conditions of soil and climate.
Each crop is known to have its own optimum, minimum, maximum temperature and rainfall
condition. Therefore having a sound knowledge of the climatic factors and an understanding of the complex processes of interaction between
the climate and biological process of the
plant are essential to a scientific approach to farming. It is possible to optimize farm
production by adjusting cropping pattern and agronomic practices to suit the climate of the locality. It is evident that the
meteorological plays a vital role in crop planning as well as in design of infrastructures
for green houses for horticultural, floricultural etc.
