Vulnerability Assessment Of Pineapple Industries Under Changed Climate Scenarios : A new research idea

Vulnerability Of Pineapple Industries due to change in climate
Proposed Methodology

Vulnerability in pineapple industries due to climate change

Justification :

The pineapple is a tropical plant with edible fruit, and it is the most economically important plant in the Bromeliaceae family. Pineapple cultivation is restricted to hilly regions in northeastern India and coastal regions of peninsular India with high rainfall and humidity. It is also commercially grown in the interior plains with medium rainfall and supplementary irrigation. Pineapple is primarily grown under rainfed conditions. Supplemental irrigation aids in the production of large fruits in areas with abundant rainfall. Irrigation also helps to establish an off-season planting to maintain its year-round production. In case of scanty rainfall and hot weather, irrigation may be provided once in 20-25 days. The success of Pineapple cultivation depends on various climatic parameters as well as soil characteristics and irrigation requirements. Now due to global warming, the regular pattern of climate is changing and the occurrence of abnormal events is rising. As a result due to this aberration in the regular pattern of climate, pineapple productivity in many locations is getting vulnerable. That is why there is a need to analyze the impact of climatic abnormalities on the productivity of pineapples in different locations of the World. 


Proposed Objective

There are various factors on which growth and harvesting of the crop will vary.No parameter is equally important. The significance varies with parameters. As a result, the climate change impacts are vaguely mensurable. The present study aims to introduce a Vulnerability Indeisces which will cognitively measure the impact of climate change on pineapple productivity and consequently the EBITDA of pineapple industries will be compared to identify the vulnerability with time. In this aspect, the technologically advanced decision-making methods and their application in vulnerability analysis will also be tested.

7 most recent application of GIS in the identification of suitable location for rain water harvesting

The water crisis has been rapidly increasing these days in many parts of the world which emphasize the importance of refinement in water management systems. Harvesting of rainwater(or rainwater harvesting(RWH)), which involves the collection and storage of rainwater for future use, is an area of increasing interest and one of the most suitable measures for ensuring water availability in the future days. The location of RWH is of utmost importance for the success of the water harvesting project. Locations for the construction of RWH structures like check dams, percolation tanks, bench terraces, contour ridges, and contour bunds can be determined by the application of Geographical Information System(GIS), Multi-Criteria Decision Making(MCDM), and different predictive models. Below are the seven recent case studies which demonstrate the procedure of location selection for RWH. 1) Case Study of Kiambu County-Kenya The ideal sites for five rainwater harvesting structures (bench terraces, ch

Five Most Popular English Movies (Fiction) on “Climate Change and its Impacts on Water Resources”

Students working in the field of climate change and water resource modeling often complain that they can’t see what they are predicting. They are confused about the reliability of their models and depend on some statistical indices to analyze the accuracy of their predictions. But if they want to have an idea about the reality of their predictions then they must watch the following five movies which simulate the future based on one or more climate change based impacts:.....

How IoT is used for fish farming ?

Download the Clickable version Robots, drones, remote sensors, and computer imaging, along with constantly improving machine learning and analytical tools, are used in IoT in fish farms to monitor the fish during its various developmental stages, survey, and map fields, as well as provide data to farmers for logical farm management plans that will save them time and money. The October Edition of HydroGeek tries to highlight the various application of IoTs for the development of fish farming technologies. Some of the most significant case studies and research works were identified and placed under the Case Study and Research News sections. The latest Calls for conferences of the year 2023, New Journals, Special Issues of old journals, and tutorials on IoT were also shared in the Newsletter.
