National Progress Reports in Agrometeorology

The WMO Secretariat prepared and circulated a detailed questionnaire for the preparation of National Reports on Progress Made in Agricultural Meteorology by Members per Recommendation 1 of CAgM-XIV. In accordance with this recommendation, the WMO Secretariat will continue to compile the information in a comprehensive database to make it available to members.

Serbia On the website of RHMSS, Department for Agricultural meteorology regularly updates agrometeorological bulletins and analyses: seven-day, ten-day, monthly and annual. Bulletins are based on actual agrometeorological data obtained from meteorological network on the territory of Serbia, existing agroclimatic documentation, short and medium - range weather forecast, as well as on other information (agricultural, biological) obtained from agricultural organizations and field - specialists. The base period 1971-2000 is used for the climate anomalies assessment The most important agrometeorological parameters, such as potential evapotranspiration, various moisture indices, effective temperature sums, are calculated and presented. Besides the appropriate presentations of the relevant numeric values, bulletins comprise brief summaries of the influence of meteorological factors on the development, growth and yield of crop and seasonal field works carried out in the preceding period, assessment of the crop state, as well as agrometeorological forecasts, advices and warnings in unfavourable weather conditions. Beginning with year 2009 operative forecast of daily potential evapotranspiration by Hargeaves (1985) method was introduced. Forecast of potential evapotranspiration is based on extreme daily temperature deterministic ten-day forecast (ECMWF and RHMSS). Actual ET0 values for the previous five days and ten day forecasts as per stations are updated every day. Also, extra page named “moisture conditions” was introduced containing products of Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) calculations within the various time scales. Besides mentioned, the ten days bulletin based on using of the CROPSYST model became operational. After all, RHMSS began the application of Canadian Fire Weather Index – FWI. Operative calculation of Index values for tree days ahead are based on weather forecast mezzo-scale model of the latest generation (WRF-NMM).
