Chidambaram, a semiarid region is subjected to high climate variability and sensitivity. In Chidambaram 1376 people comprising 5 per cent were involved in agricultural sector activities. In spite of the environmental confrontation primary agricultural sector consists of local and regional marketing, with paddy being the primary traded product, accompanied by cereals, black gram, pulses and sugarcane. Interdisciplinary study has been undertaken as climate and agriculture are interrelated processes; both take place on a global scale. The study area has been explored at local scale, by means of interviewing several farmers and interpreted by using the advanced weathering station established by Annamalai University. In order of broad scale understanding, advanced meteorological Meta data have been collected from the National atmospheric research lab, which relates the study to the national scale. At last all the processed climate data, comprises using, Anemometer, Sunshine recorder and sophisticated equipments are used as a feed data in Educational global climate model software. The turnout presents a substantial rise of carbon dioxide and noticeable amount of temperature change over a certain period. Even carbon dioxide levels would also have effects both detrimental and beneficial, on crop yields. This study aims to examine the impact of climate variables on agriculture and bring out the awareness of the farmers who are quitting from their agricultural activities due to this correspondence of ill effects and helps to sustain their life of human beings for present and future generations too.
