National Agricultural Drought Assessment and Monitoring System                    Back to other RS applications

Near real time assessment of agricultural drought at district level for 9 states and sub district level for 4 states, in terms of prevalence, severity and persistence, during kharif season (June-Nov) and submission of monthly drought reports to the Ministry of Agriculture and State Departments of Agriculture and Relief of different states has been the main focus of this project. The methodology essentially reflects the integration of satellite derived crop condition/surface wetness with ground collected rainfall and crop area progression to evolve decision rules on the prevalence, intensity and persistence of agricultural drought situation. The drought information is effectively used for contingency planning and for drought declaration process.
