Abstract

Farmers particularly smallholder farmers in India are increasingly getting exposed to adverse impacts of
climate change and extreme weather events. The increased vulnerability to different abiotic (weather) and
biotic risks (pests, diseases, nutrient disorders, weeds etc.) and accompanying productivity and agricultural
income losses discourage farming households from investing in both productivity enhancing innovations as
well as human capital development. The new technological advancements in digital and computing fields
provide new opportunities to improve agricultural risk assessment, develop management strategies and use it
to reduce the negative effects of climate change through innovative tools.
