New weather forecasting system launched for farmers

A new weather forecasting system titled 'Sub-Seasonal to Seasonal Forecasting for Agriculture in Bangladesh' has been launched to help farmers decide their production plans, reports UNB.

The scheme has been implemented in collaboration with the 'Department of Agriculture Extension' and 'Bangladesh Meteorological Department' for providing accurate and up-to-date weather information to farmers under the 'Agro-Meteorological Information Systems Development project.

The new weather forecasting system was launched at the Bangladesh Military Museum's Multipurpose Hall at Bijay Sarani in the capital on Monday. Agriculture Secretary Wahida Akhtar was the chief guest on the occasion.

Through this system, farmers will get weather forecast for the next four weeks to three months, which will help them make production decisions based on the weather pattern.
