Agro-climatic resource inventory characterization in spatial domain can play a great role in site specific suitability of sustainable agricultural crop production. An attempt has been made for creation of spatial database and zoning of agro-climatic resources of Punjab in spatial environment using GIS approach. This zoning approach divided Punjab into five zones for temperature and seven zones for Length of Growing Period (LGP).
