THRESHOLD

VALUE
Development of
for Crop
Management
Mark Anthony DL. Dela Cruz
The point that must be
exceeded to begin producing
a given effect or result or to
elicit a response
Example:
o 42mm of rainfall in one day will cause 2 feet of flood
in Mr. Notas farm

o 4 consecutive days of 70-80% RH will promote
occurrence of BLB for a certain variety

o 50kph of wind will cause IR64 in Ms. Ditarros farm to
lodge

o 7 consecutive days of soil moisture below 10% will
cause significant yield reduction for rice in
reproductive stage
-is the science that applies knowledge
in weather and climate to qualitative
and quantitative improvement in
agricultural production.

-it requires a diverse,
multidisciplinary array of data for
operational applications and
research.

These data needs to be supplemented
with more specific data

related to the biosphere,

the environment of all living


organisms,

and biological data related to the


growth and development of these
organisms.

Agrometeorological information includes also the technological factors
that affect agriculture, such as irrigation, plant protection, fumigation
and dust spraying.


70-80% RH for 7 days will favor
Rice Blast IF the variety is
susceptible
Example:
A farm with 0.00 mm rainfall in 5
days will experience yield reduction
IF irrigation is not available
Each farm is a unique
entity with
combinations of
climate, soils, crops,
livestock and
equipment to manage
and operate within the
farming system
REMEMBER:

Efficient weather and climate data utilization:

1.

Information concerned with the agricultural
practices employed.
a. conserves natural
resources

b. promotes economic
benefit to the farmer.

Analysis of the effects of weather

The climatic elements do not act independently on the
biological life cycle of living things: an analytical study of
their individual effects is often illusory.

Handling them all simultaneously, however, requires
considerable data and complex statistical treatment.
