Dr. Vanoo apart from financial support is using science to empower the farmers. Cloud seeding is a form of weather modification, a way of changing the amount or type of precipitation that falls from clouds, by dispersing substances into the air that serve as cloud condensation or ice nuclei, which alter the microphysical processes within the cloud. He has facilitated, supported scientists working in this direction and helped them discover a rocket which when shot towards the sky will cause rainfall.
