Atun Roychoudhury | Navaneethan.M | Dr. Arutchelvan.V

Abstract: In Tamilnadu over 60 per cent of the employment is dependent on agriculture, a sector which is highly sensitive to climate variability. Climate and Agriculture are interrelated processes, both take place on a global scale [1 & 2]. Global warming is projected to have significant impact on conditions affecting agriculture, including temperature, precipitation and glacial runoff. Rising Carbon Dioxide levels would also have effects both detrimental and beneficial, on crop yields. The overall effect of Climate Change on agriculture will depend on the balance of these effects by the authority of the Intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC). This study aims to examine the impact of climate variables on agriculture and bring out the awareness of the farmers who are quitting from their agricultural activities due to this correspondence of ill effects and helps to sustain their life of human beings for present and future generations too [3].
