"The impetus for this book comes from the desire of the editor to bring together the many years of his experiences of working in Africa and Asia, and asking others who share his vision and/or experiences, to write chapters in their areas of expertise." (Prof. Albert Weiss, University of Nebraska)

"Part I provides many interesting ideas about education and training, the importance of case studies, understanding how different societies use information and other important topics under the broad umbrella of agrometeorology in developing countries. The key concept in this Part is that there must be a bottom up approach to supply useful information to farmers in these countries." (Prof. Albert Weiss, University of Nebraska)

"The index is excellent and can be used to develop a focused approach to a topic, e.g., Climate or Farmer Field Schools and Roving Seminars. ... For those who are interested in agrometeorology applied to developing nations, this book is very important. Credit must be given to Kees Stigter for documenting his experiences and insights and for logistics involved in this effort. (Prof. Albert Weiss, University of Nebraska)

"Agrometeorological services utilise meteorological and climatological information to improve and/or protect agricultural production and the livelihood of farmers. Therefore, in the context of climate change, the importance of applied agrometeorology is ever increasing. This book provides a valuable contribution to this direction." (Prof. Roger Stone and Dr. Tek Maraseni, University of Southern Queensland, Australia)

"This book provides a broad range of valuable spatial and temporal information, accessible to all levels of agricultural stakeholders, that can be used to address problems impacting the livelihood of farmers and other agricultural producers." (Prof. Roger Stone and Dr. Tek Maraseni, University of Southern Queensland, Australia)

"The discussion covers a range of applications such as crops (monocropping and multiple cropping), forest trees and non-forest trees, and provide valuable insight and understanding to support adaptation under climate change." (Prof. Roger Stone and Dr. Tek Maraseni, University of Southern Queensland, Australia)

"As mentioned in the preface, the contents of the book aim to create a renaissance in the teaching (that is education, training and extension) of applied agrometeorology at all levels. It provides a range of teaching and extension materials, including practical examples of how to apply agrometeorology to better solve problems in the livelihood of farmers and other agricultural producers." (Prof. Roger Stone and Dr. Tek Maraseni, University of Southern Queensland, Australia)

"The research and materials presented here do provide a good source of information for indentifying research problems/gaps and designing/framing PhD, MSc and BSc research in the area of agrometeorology. Therefore, this book provides useful collective information for potential research and higher degrees students."  (Prof. Roger Stone and Dr. Tek Maraseni, University of Southern Queensland, Australia)
