Weather plays an important role in agricultural production. It has a profound influence on crop growth, development and yields on the incidence of pests and diseases on water needs and on ferti­lizer requirements. This is due to differences in nutrient mobilization as a result of water stresses, as well as the timelines and effectiveness of preventive measures and cultural operations with crops. Weather aberrations may cause physical damage to crops and soil erosion. The quality of crop produce during movement from field to stor­age and transport to market depends on weather. Bad weather may affect the quality of produce during transport and the viability and vigour of seeds and planting material during storage.
