This report presents district-level analyses of agriculture-specific indicators prevalent in India. High resolution gridded data is used to estimate near-real time crop conditions and weather parameters. With temporal dimension of two weeks and district-level analyses, this report can ensure consistent and extensive monitoring. It aims to build a common platform where location specific, high quality data is available with minimal time lag to monitor weather conditions and track the progress of agriculture in the country. Seasonal data is also accompanied with summaries from the start of the Kharif period for overall seasonal analyses. Deviations from long term averages are presented to gauge overall climatic trends.
The report's first section presents weather parameters, while the second describes crop conditions and crop-specific conditions of prevented sowing and sowing failure. Final yield estimates are described thereafter. Practitioners can use this periodic report for further research. The report will also aid agencies and individuals involved in the agriculture sector.
