Methods and tools
This page provides detailed agroclimatic maps for the countries affected by the Tsunami, as well as detailed rainfed crop calendar information for the stations in the coastal areas.
Crop calendars list information about the number of growing seasons, the planting and harvesting dates, as well as the climatic conditions prevailing during the season. Naturally, the listed values correspond to averages, and the actual dates of farming operations may vary from year to year due to climate, but also to the farmers own traditions, in particular whether the crops are rainfed or irrigated. Although most stations belong to the same general area, crop calendars may vary significantly from place to place.
