The Gro Drought Index is the world’s first high resolution global agricultural drought index. It differs from traditional indices in that, beyond precipitation, it factors in other ecology-driven indicators that closely track the sequence of events leading to drought, giving a more accurate evaluation of the impact of both drought intensity and duration on agriculture. Agricultural drought impacts crop production, soil degradation, and desertification. Early detection of signals of drought is important to help mitigate these negative consequences.
