Abstract:

Climate change and agriculture are interrelated processes, both of which take place on a global scale. The study was undertaken to identify the trend in weather parameters in Malaprabha Command Area (MCA). The research was based on secondary data of nineteen years (1999 to 2017) on different weather parameters such as precipitation, temperature, relative humidity and potential evapotranspiration obtained from the Irrigation Water Management Research Centre, Belavatgi under UAS, Dharwad. The statistical tools namely trend analysis, Mann Kendall trend test and Sen’s slope estimator were employed. The trend analysis shown cubic and quadratic models are suitable for most of the parameters. Mann Kendall trend test revealed that most of the months showed no trend for precipitation, temperature and potential evapotranspiration at Belavatagi Farm, except for few months, temperature showed the decreasing trend respectively in more months. At MCA, temperature and relative humidity showed decreasing and increasing trend in most of the months. Precipitation showed no trend in almost all months.


Keywords: Trend, Sen’s slope, Malaprabha command area
