District Agro-met Unit (DAMU), Kiphire organised a one-day farmers awareness programme in Kiphire village on July 16. During the programme, the farmers were made aware on how the IMD (India Meteorological department) has come up in providing weather information to farmers by setting up Agro-met station (DAMU). 

This will generate products such as land surface water index, land surface temperature, leaf area index which will provide information about agriculture service like irrigation, sowing and fertilizer application to farmers through short message services in their mobile. Hence, the importance of registering their phone numbers, were also informed to the farmers.

According to DIPR, the farmers were also lauded for taking management strategies measures during the invasion of Fall Army Worm (FAW) on maize. Several questions made by the farmers were also discussed at the end of the programme. A total of 54 farmers attended the programme. The resource persons were Temjenna Jamir SMS (Agro-Meteorology) and Setsiba Sangtam AFA (DAO) Kiphire.
