Overview of the mHM Model
What is SMI?
0.3 ≤ SMI < 0.2
Short-term dry conditions before or after a preceding drought.
0.2 ≤ SMI < 0.1
Damages to crops and pastures possible.
0.1 ≤ SMI < 0.05
Losses in crops and pastures are likely.
0.05 ≤ SMI < 0.02
High probability of major losses in crops and pasture.
SMI ≤ 0.02 =
High probability of exceptional losses in crops and pastures.
