Abstract: India, located in south central Asia, has great economic dependence on agriculture. A likely impact of climate change on agricultural productivity is causing great concern to the scientists and planners in the country. Weather forecasting at different spatial and temporal scales would be significant tool for adaption in agriculture under future climate change scenario. In the present paper, detailed elaboration has been made how the state-of-art technologies of weather forecasting including the climate projections can be taken as a tool to reduce the negative impacts of climate change and climatic variability. Also for combating the climate change issues, the adaptation requires effective and timely delivery and exchange of all supporting mechanism and meteorological information. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can also play a great role to disseminate the information. Efforts were also made to show the active role of on-going and proposed ICTs for adaptation in agriculture to climate change.
