Farming and climate - Anemometer

Main topic Farming and climate
Farming is very much dependent on climatic conditions and is highly exposed to climate change. But farming also contributes to the climate change by releasing greenhouse gases into atmosphere. Anemometer is a instrument used to record the wind speeds.

There are obvious results of climate change which are now affecting farming activities. The average annual and seasonal rainfall has been decreasing steadily affecting all aspects of farming in many regions. There is a steady increase in heatwaves, droughts, storms and floods across many nations. These frequent extreme conditions will have immediate and cumulative effects as the time passes.

Weather friendly farming is the latest concept by which apart from climate change mitigation, efforts are to be made to stabilize the climate and environment by farming. Agricultural production is essentially is the process of converting primarily the solar energy into forms of food energy for consumption by humans and livestock.
