Evaluation of semiarid mesoclimatic areas for agriculture and livestock

Evaluation of semiarid mesoclimatic areas for agriculture and livestock

Revista Agronomica del Noroeste Argentino 15(3): 71-89

A method is presented for evaluating mesoclimatic areas for agriculture and livestock in Tucuman and Santiago del Estero provinces. The relationship between the Thornthwaite water index and winter rainfall expressed as a percentage of the annual rainfall is used to classify semiarid areas into 8 groups ranging from very dry environments (N. central Tucuman) to those which are adequate for agriculture and livestock (E.
