My current research is mainly devoted to the comprehensive assessment of agro-climatic resources and their efficient use (including agro-climatic resources study of high mountain zone), favorable agro-climatic zoning of agro-cultures replacement, improvement of existing agrometeorological forecasting methods and considering climate change tendency on the background of global warming revealing the transformation of agro-ecological zones of agro-cultures distribution; As well as the introduction of innovative technologies for ecologically pure products in the development of organic (ecological) farming. The aim of these studies is to integrate scientific activities with the learning process, and definite coordination with the relevant production, which significantly ensures the study of agro-ecological problems in agriculture and developing ways to effectively tackle it.

Based on the 70-year-long meteorological observations (in 1948-2017) carried out in the areas of the mountainous and high-mountainous areas of Mtskheta-Mtianeti in east Georgia and Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti in west Georgia, a trend of changing the agroclimatic features (sum of active temperatures (>10ºC) and atmospheric precipitations (mm)), rise/decline in particular, has been identified under the impact of global warming. As per the designed scenario, at 1ºC and 2ºC increase in temperature (in west and east Georgia, respectively), an increase of the sum of active temperatures above the current (baseline) value in the mountainous (3525ºC) and high-mountainous (2206ºC) areas of Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti in the west is 189ºC and 192ºC, respectively. As the equations drafted by considering the above-said future (2020-2050) scenarios (1ºC and 2ºC temperature increase), the sums of active temperatures (>10ºC) and agroclimatic zones with the prospect to grow relevant crops were identified. Three agroclimatic zones were identified in Mtskheta-Mtianeti region in east Georgia. The I mountainous zone spreads from 1000 to 1500 m altitude, the II high-mountainous zone spreads up to 2000 m altitude, and the III high-mountainous zone spreads from 2000 to 2500 m altitude.

Based on the meteorological observations carried out in the areas of the mountainous and high-mountainous areas of Mtskheta-Mtianeti in east Georgia and Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti in west Georgia, the trend of changing agro-climatic characteristics under the global warming has been revealed. According to the equations drafted by future (2020-2050) scenarios (1ºC and 2ºC temperature increase), the sums of active temperatures (>10ºC) were determined and agroclimatic zones were identified. As per the scenarios developed for global warming, a temperature increase will not have any significant negative impact on the agricultural crops provided it is not higher than the increase forecasted by the scenario. On the contrary, it may be beneficial to grow the crops at different altitudes from the sea level, by considering vertical zoning, where a 1ºC temperature increase will make it possible to grow the crops 100-200 m higher and 200-300 m higher with a 2ºC temperature increase as compared to the present zones.

International Scientific Conference - Landscape dimensions of sustainable development: science-carto/GIS planning-governanceTbilisi, Georgia202212-16 სექტემბერიIv. Javakhishvili Tbilisi State UniversityAssessment of agroclimatic Potential of the Eastern Highland regions of Georgia oral

Based on the analysis and statistical processing of data of multi-year (in 1948-2017) meteorological observations in the eastern highland regions of Georgia (Akhmeta, Kazbegi, Ninotsminda, Tsalka, Java) a trend of increase/decrease the duration of vegetation periods, sums of active temperatures (>10°C), atmospheric precipitations (mm) and hydrothermal coefficients (HTC), both during the whole vegetation period (IV-X) and during the active vegetation period (VI-VIII) have been identified. The dynamics of their course were depicted by trends. According to the trends, the tendencies of increasing the active temperature sums and decreasing tendencies of atmospheric precipitation (Java is an exception, Shida Kartli region) and hydrothermal coefficients are revealed. In order to present these values clearly, the data of 70-year-long observations mentioned above were divided into two 35-year-long periods. The I period covers the years of 1948-1982, and the II period covers the years of 1983-2017. According to the municipalities of the highland regions (Akhmeta, Kazbegi, Ninotsminda, Tsalka, Java), in the second period, the date of the onset of active air temperatures (>10°C) occurs earlier and the date of the temperature below 10°C ends later as compared to the first period. In the same period, the sums of active temperatures are increased and the vegetation period is prolonged. In the second period, i.e. for the last 35 years, the amount of precipitations and consequently, the hydrothermal coefficients (Java is an exception, where the change of HTC is not observed during the vegetation period) have decreased. Despite this, if the precipitations do not reduce further, they will be sufficient to grow cereal crops, vegetable and other annual crops, as well as succulent roots for animal forage and pasture and hayfield grasses with (one-time) irrigation in some years.

In terms of contemporary global climate warming, the problem of slowing down the ongoing climate change and vulnerability and adaptation to it has become a world-wide issue, which was recognized as the major challenge of the UNO at the beginning of the present century. Consequently, the study of the impact of irregular climate change on the productivity and vulnerability of the agricultural crops and expected transformation of the existing agroclimatic zones is necessary and topical. Based on the 70-year-long meteorological observations (in 1948-2017) carried out in the areas of the mountainous and high-mountainous areas of Mtskheta-Mtianeti in east Georgia and Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti in west Georgia, a trend of changing the agroclimatic features rise/decline in particular, has been identified under the impact of global warming. As per the designed scenario, at 1ºC and 2ºC increase in temperature (in west and east Georgia, respectively), an increase of the sum of active temperatures above the current (baseline) value in the mountainous (3525ºC) and high-mountainous (2206ºC) areas. An increase in the sum of active temperatures in the mountainous (3581ºC) and high-mountainous (2128ºC) areas of Mtskheta-Mtianeti in the east is 486ºC and 500ºC, respectively. As the equations drafted by considering the above-said future (2020-2050) scenarios (1ºC and 2ºC temperature increase), the sums of active temperatures (>10ºC) and agroclimatic zones with the prospect to grow relevant crops were identified.

International Scientific Conference - ,,Black sea region at the crossroads of civilizations’’Tbilisi, Georgia20225-6 ივლისიSh.Rustaveli state universityNatural hydrometeorological events in Black Sea regions of Georgiaoral

The location and orographic conditions of Georgia lead to the formation of a variety of climates and landscapes in both the western and eastern parts. The risks arising from these events have a great impact on the sustainable development of the country. The urgency of the emerging problem gives an impetus to the study of natural hazards. The study of natural events using Earth Observation Mission (EOS) satellite data has become particularly relevant, which allows for a detailed study of the natural factors causing these events. The purpose of the presented research is to study the spatial-temporal regularities of natural hydrometeorological events in the coastal regions of Georgia (Adjara, Guria, Samegrelo): extreme temperatures, strong winds, torrential rains and frosts using the Georgian hydrometeorological observation network and satellite data. Strong winds (v>15 m/s) cause great damage to the economy and the population. Continuous series of existing observational data are used to study its variability. Rainfall extremes along with snowmelt on rivers cause landslides and floods. The number of extreme rainy days and their causes are analyzed. Frosts are one of the most dangerous meteorological phenomena for agriculture in the region. The degree of damage to agricultural crops by frost depends on its intensity and duration. Climatic features of glaciers are analyzed. Their distribution in time and space, as well as the dates of the first autumn and last spring frosts and the duration of the frost-free period are established. Taking into account the mentioned characteristics allows selection of effective measures for protection of plants from frosts and reduction of crop losses.

1st International Scientific Conference - ,,World scientific reports’’ Paris, France202217-18 ნოემბერიPublisher.agencyIrrigation efficiency during sowing and vegetation periodoral

Irrigation leads to an increase in yield in all areas, but in arid and severely arid regions, without it, it is virtually impossible to harvest agricultural crops and conduct more or less efficient agricultural production. The article discusses the data on the increase in yield of agricultural crops as a result of irrigation according to the climatic zones of Georgia. Also, the effect of the amount of water supplied on the yield. Irrigation before sowing is not accidental and cannot be explained by the lack of irrigation water alone. Irrigation before sowing on brackish soils is a necessary measure. Before sowing on such soils, irrigation is carried out with a large rate of irrigation (1000-2000 m3) and easily soluble salts are washed into the lower layer. In this way, the seed gets into a relatively salinized area and germination is more normal, since the presence of easily soluble salts is more noticeable at the beginning of germination and development.

In terms of global warming, as the temperature increases, the centuries-old climatic parameters of different locations change and agricultural indices determining the development of productivity of agricultural crops change also. In terms of the changed environment, most economic damage may be inflicted to non-adaptive, vulnerable branches, including agrarian sector in the first instance. In this connection, the studies identified the changing tendency (increase/fall) of agroclimatic indices (sums of active temperatures (>10°C) and atmospheric precipitations (mm), hydrothermal coefficients) caused by global warming in the vegetation period in five regions of Georgia - in particular, the trends of increasing the sums of active temperatures and decreasing indices of atmospheric precipitations and hydrothermal coefficients are observed what evidences more frequent droughts of different types.

Tendency of global warming was observed on the territory of Georgia. Increase of the temperature in Eastern and Western Georgia is 0.4 and 0.2°C, respectively. According to scenarios, at the increase of temperature by 2 and 1°C active temperature sums (>10°C) increase by 440-480°C and 220-250°C in Eastern and Western Georgia, respectively. Sums of increase and decrease (in %) of atmospheric precipitation (mm) are taken into consideration according to grapevine distribution areas. By the scenario worked out at the increase of temperature by 1°C the duration of the vegetation period (day) increases and amounts to 12 days on average, and at the temperature increase by 2°C the duration amounts 20 days. In this study, zones of distribution by sea levels of various vine sorts on the territory of Georgia are considered taking into account supposed increase of temperature. For forecasting of coming phases - flowerings and ripen are made corresponding regression of equations.

Remote sensing technology is successfully used for frequent monitoring of carbon sequestration in agroforestry, but the utility of this technology is dependent upon many factors. Different sources of remotely sensed data provide alternative types of data. Remotely sensed data that is acquired from visible-near infrared (VIS-NIR) detectors is most commonly used in vegetation detection. The most common product from VIS-NIR sources is the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), which is an index of the greenness of the vegetation being monitored.

The impact of different doses of organic fertilizer (10, 15 and 20 t/ha) on the growth and development of experimental crops was identified and used to fix the content of heavy metals and nitrates in the harvested experimental crops. Correlations between the ecological factors of the environment, organic fertilizer and harvest were established, and relevant regression equations were designed on their basis what allows identifying the rate of the ecologically pure harvest (t/ha). In the high-mountainous regions of Georgia, one can distinguish two different agro-ecological zones meeting the demands of these crops to the agro-climatic factors - the sum of active air temperatures of over 10ºC, sum of atmospheric precipitations (mm) in the warm period of the year.

Remote sensing technology is successfully used for frequent monitoring of carbon sequestration in agroforestry, but the utility of this technology is dependent upon many factors. Different sources of remotely sensed data provide alternative types of data. Remotely sensed data that is acquired from visible-near infrared (VIS-NIR) detectors is most commonly used in vegetation detection. The most common product from VIS-NIR sources is the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), which is an index of the greenness of the vegetation being monitored.

It is noted, that the considered region up to height of 1000-1500 m a.s.l. during the vegetation period is provided by the sum of temperatures, that is important for development grain, grapes, fruit, vegetable and other cultures. The close relation among absolutely minimal temperature of air, a snow cover, temperature of soil in the surface and depths of 5 sm are reveled, on the basis of which are made corresponding inequlities of regresses. According to agroclimatic resources calculated agroclimatic indices for the warm period (IV-X), which up to heigh of 1400-1500 m (above sea level) are satisfactory for production of agricultural crops.

IX Scientific Conference - Modern Problems and Issues of GeographyTbilisi, Georgia200519/12/2005 - 19/12/2005Geographical Societe of GeorgiaThe main aspects of organic (ecological) farming in the highland agro-climatic zoneoral

Organic agriculture relies mainly on local soil-climatic resources and depends on the maintenance of ecological balance. The purpose of organic agriculture is the following: the production of ecologically safe products, long-term maintenance and sustainable increase of fertility, reducing contamination of all kinds that may accompany agricultural activity. Climatic and agrometeorological conditions determine the succassful fulfilment of this system. For agroclimatic conditions of the high-mountainous zones of Samtskhe-Javakheti a probability curve (in per cents) for sowing of cultural products and dating of the main phases is built up. A time-table of the provision of the number of days with more than 5 ml. precipitation is built up and the optimal terms of watering the soil are indicated.

Global warming: changes of agroclimatic zones in humid subtropical, mountainous and high mountainous regions of Georgia/IJCR / International Journal of Current Research, 2016 / Vol. 8(7), pp. 35403-35409 State Target Program

According to humid subtropical, mountainous and high mountainous regions of Georgia there have been identified tendencies of changes of agro-climatic indicators caused by global warming (increase or decrease). Realized studies confirm that the impact of global warming is more reflected in the mountainous and high mountainous conditions, which has a significant impact on the increase in the sums of active temperatures, extension of the vegetation period, general reduction of atmospheric precipitation and frequent droughts.

Distribution of different varieties of vine with account of global warming on the territory of Georgia/Georgian National Academy of Sciences / 2013 / vol. 7, №1, pp. 105-108 State Target Program

Climate change is one of the most important global problems. Atmosphere’s self-cleaning capacity cannot maintain ecological balance of the climatic system due to strong anthropogenic loadings. Analysis of the global temperature regime confirmed that the climate changes sharply and tends to global warming. Tendency of global warming was observed on the territory of Georgia as well. Increase of the temperature in Eastern and Western Georgia is 0.4 and 0.2 °C, respectively. It is possible that it will reach 1-2 °C by 2030-2050. At the increase of temperature by 2 and 1°C active temperature sums (above 10 °C) increase by 440-480 °C and 220-250 °C in Eastern and Western Georgia. An agroclimatic map is compiled for vertical zonal distribution of different kinds of vine based on the above-mentioned data. Three agroecological zones are marked out in the map. Sums of increase and decrease (in %) of atmospheric precipitation (mm) are taken into consideration according to vine distribution areas. By the scenario worked out at the increase of temperature by 1°C the duration of the vegetation period (day) increases and amounts to 12 days on average, and at the temperature increase by 2 °C the duration amounts to 20 days. An extended vegetation period has positive effect on changes of terms of agrotechnical measures. Provision by temperature sums needed for complete ripening of grapes in the vegetation period is specified according to distribution zones of late vine varieties. By the database in Akhmeta (Eastern Georgia), the temperature sum is provided 8 times per 10 years, in Keda (Western Georgia) – 9 times per 10 years. According to the scenario it is supplied at the increase by 2 and 1°C each year.

Influence of global warming on agroclimatic indices of agriculture and intensity of droughts in Kakheti region, East Georgia/Georgian National Academy of Sciences / 2016 / vol.10, №1, pp. 97-104 State Target Program

Against the background of current global warming the temperature in Eastern Georgia is increased by 0.4-0.5°C, on average, which might increase by 2°C and more in 2050. Such an increase of temperature shows the tendency of change (increase or decrease) in agroclimatic factors (active temperature, precipitations, hydrothermal coefficient) determining growth and development of agricultural plants, their productivity etc. Based on the mentioned observation data the dynamics of agroclimatic factors (sums of active temperatures and atmospheric precipitations) were mapped in trends showing the tendency of increase of the active temperature sums in the region which might improve the growth and development of agriculture in vertical zones. As a result of decreased atmospheric precipitations and the increase of the abovementioned sums of active temperatures (according to trends) in the active vegetation period the decrease of the hydrothermal coefficient (HTC)is also marked. On the ground of the meteorological observations of sixty years (1949-2008) the hydrothermal coefficients were defined and the arid and humid conditions of the vegetation period were estimated. In particular, different kinds of frequent droughts are marked on most territories of Kakheti that require some measures to be carried out. The above-said studies show that global warming has both positive and negative action in vegetation period. In conditions of certain soil humidity the sum of increased active temperatures will be favorable on the territories, where agricultures suffer heat deficit. The area of plant distribution might extend higher above sea level. The tendency of the hydrothermal coefficient decrease will have a negative influence on the productivity of agricultural plants causing serious problems to agrarian sector because the weak and moderate droughts might intensify. Therefore, given global warming some preliminary activities for climate moderation are necessary.

Neglected cultivars for the Mtskheta-Mtianeti region (East Georgia): ampelography, phenology, and agro-climatology , Journal of Grapevine Research - Vitis,, GermanyState Target Program

Georgia is an important source of grapevine intra-specific variability for viticulture. This biodiversity can be a suitable tool to face the challenge of climate change. Nevertheless, it is important to take into account the interaction between the interest genotype and the local environment, whose cli- mate is changing due to global heating. In this work, we put in relation the phenotypic behavior of some neglected Geor- gian cultivars (‘Tabidziseuli’, ‘Daisi’, ‘Qvelouri’, ‘Bazaleturi Co- likouri’) from the Mtskheta-Mtianeti Georgian region to the agro-climatology of the region itself. The phenological phases and the vegetation length of these four grape varieties were described, as well as their principal ampelographic characters. The impact of global heating on the agro-climatology of the Mtskheta-Mtianeti region has also been established, by com- paring the sum of active temperatures (>10°C) of multi-years (1948-2017) with those calculated for the future scenario (2020-2050, temperature increase by 2°C). Based on this com- parison, three agro-climatic zones have been confirmed with- in the region: dry subtropical, mountain and high mountain. The scenario of temperature increase by 2°C in the next three decades will cause the sum of active temperatures to reach

3900-4000°C in the dry subtropical zone, 3400-3500°C in the mountain zone and 1900-2000°C in the high mountain zone. Considering the vegetation length of the cultivars analyzed, it can be expected a shift of the most suitable sites for viticul- ture from the dry subtropical zone to the mountain area. High mountain seems not to be suitable for the cultivation of the studied cultivars. Given this environmental variability within the region, the increase in temperature will not suppress viti- culture in Mtskheta-Mtianeti, if the real temperature does not exceed the level predicted by scenario.

Evaluation of the agro-climatic potential of the high mountainous areas in South Georgia to develop ecological agriculture/SGEM WORLD SCIENCET / ransactions of international multidisciplinary scientific Geo conference / 2016 / pp. 349-355State Target Program

The impact of different doses of organic fertilizer (10, 15 and 20 t/ha) on the growth and development of experimental crops was identified and used to fix the content of heavy metals and nitrates in the harvested experimental crops. Correlations between the ecological factors of the environment, organic fertilizer and harvest were established, and relevant regression equations were designed on their basis what allows identifying the rate of the ecologically pure harvest (t/ha). In the high-mountainous regions of Georgia, one can distinguish two different agro-ecological zones meeting the demands of these crops to the agro-climatic factors - the sum of active air temperatures of over 10ºC, sum of atmospheric precipitations (mm) in the warm period of the year.

Evaluation of the agro-ecological potential of Racha-Lechkhumi - Kvemo Svaneti region (Georgia) and zoning of crops/SGEM WORLD SCIENCE / 2018 / vol. 18, pp. 361-367State Target Program

A regression equation to fix the date of transfer of the air temperature above 10ºC in the vegetation period is deduced. The weather phenomena threatening the branch of agriculture in the given region (such as frosting, hail, drought and strong winds) and their occurrence at different altitudes above sea level are described. The seasonality and intensity of the mentioned phenomena are identified as well. In particular, a regression equation to fix the first days of expected frostings (the first and last frostings) is deduced. By considering the sums of active temperatures depending on vertical zoning, there are 4 agro-ecological zones identified with the areas of prospective crops.
