Global agricultural methods and results are significantly impacted by the complex interplay between climate and weather. The climate, which is defined by long-term climatic factors like humidity, temperature, precipitation, and wind patterns, impacts the agricultural terrain. The short-term variations in these factors that affect daily farming activities are represented by the weather.Extreme weather events and climate variability have a major impact on rural livelihoods, food security, and agricultural output. Strong difficulties to agricultural systems are posed by heat waves, storms, floods, and droughts, which can result in yield losses, degraded soil, and unstable financial situations for farmers. In addition, the continuous modifications in climatic patterns brought about by man-made elements such as greenhouse gas emissions are changing customary agricultural methods and raising questions about crop appropriateness in different areas.
