    agrometeorology • For these rainfall decreases will provide stresses in arid and semi-arid areas, and increase in pests and diseases • Developing countries, especially small island developing states impacts of warming on tropical cyclones and heavy rainfall pose largests risks to agrometeorology. Sorghum, a major grain and forage crop, is one of the most extensively adapted crops to the semi-arid tropics. The rainfall during the crop season could vary from to mm. Terminal-drought stress is the most serious constraint to sorghum production by: 6.
