Weekly Assured Rainfall Probability

Back To Agroclimatic Information

Probabilistic analysis of weekly rainfall over India is very useful to the Planners, Hydrologists, Agricultural Administrators, Plant breeders, Agronomists and the farmers for formulating policies regarding crop adaptation, plant breeding, drought management, irrigation planning and harnessing of rain water for maximizing agricultural production. Therefore, for efficient planning, research workers, farmers and planners stand to gain significantly by using quantified rainfall at different probability levels called Assured Rainfall. Incomplete Gamma distribution model is used for computing the assured rainfall amount at different decile levels. Weekly assured rainfall of 1950 taluka level stations spread over various rainfall zones at 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70 percent probability levels has been prepared.
