Long-range meteorological forecasting and links to agricultural applications


  • Davey, Michael
  • Brookshaw, Anca


Reliable advance information about likely meteorological conditions during an agricultural season can potentially greatly benefit planning, risk management and productivity. In this article, we review the present state of production and dissemination of meteorological long-range (seasonal) forecast information and the use of such products in agricultural applications.
