ACIAR 2009-01: Understanding Seasonal Climate Forecast (SCF) and its Implications: Handbook for Agricultural Extension Workers

This handbook aims to help agricultural extension workers in the Philippines in their work with farmers so that the latter may be able to make more informed decisions on agricultural activities. Specifically, this Handbook aims to: (1) increase the understanding of the nature and implications of seasonal climate forecast; (2) determine the value of seasonal climate forecast in agriculture; and (iii) develop the skills of resource managers in the use of seasonal forecasts to manage climate variability. Again, it is intended for agricultural extension workers for them to help farmers make informed farm production decisions. Hopefully, the ultimate outcome will be to achieve improved productivity and higher agricultural sustainability.
