There are research papers which mention that panchangs are more accurate than IMD in terms of climate prediction. Moreover, I read that there are multiple predictions possible, over and above rainfall prediction. Can I know if there is any document/book which discusses how this is calculated? I would like to know how it is calculated, and not the links where predictions are available.

  • "There are research papers which mention that panchangs are more accurate than IMD" - really? Which "research papers" are these? If this is really true, India Meteorological Department must have some astrologers on their payroll for 'cross-checking' their data but they don't seem to have any? – sv. Mar 13 at 15:34
  • In any Panjika, we find such information for the farmers-like when to sow the seeds and etc. But I don't know how these are calculated.. It is not mentioned in the Panjika itself. – Rickross Mar 14 at 6:31
  • Sharing one of the researches regarding the panchang being more accurate : researchgate.net/publication/…a_case_study_over_Tirupati_region-_a_semi-arid_tropical_site_in_India?enrichId=rgreq-b3c52ff57bbae368cbad0f9d636da526-XXX&enrichSource=Y292ZXJQYWdlOzIyOTQ0OTM2NDtBUzoxMDEwODQ1ODQ0ODA3NjlAMTQwMTExMTg1MTE3Mw%3D%3D&el=1_x_3&_esc=publicationCoverPdf – Kanchan Mar 17 at 5:46
  • There are more such resources, so hoping to understand how the agriculture/climate related predictions are done. Any views? – Kanchan Mar 17 at 5:46
