Guide to Agricultural Meteorological Practices (GAMP)

2010 Edition (WMO-No.134)

Updated in 2012

The Guide to Agricultural Meteorological Practices has been completely revised and updated with the 2010 Edition. The aim of the Guide is to provide, in a convenient form, information regarding the most important practices and procedures in agricultural meteorology. New updates will be published as needed and will incorporate only minor editing and formatting changes.  New editions will be published when there are significant revisions to the Guide. The new editions and updates will be denoted by the year that they are updated or revised.

For any comments on the Guide, please send an email to the WMO Agricultural Meteorology Division at agm@wmo.int.
