Abstract:

Rainfall assessment plays a major role in designing the mitigation measures and getting the sustainable yield in the dry lands. Weather cock software was used for the analysis and incomplete gamma test was conducted for measuring the probability of rainfall occurrence. Rainfall assessment of the Northern Transitional Zone has observed that, the zone has been often prone to meteorological and agricultural drought. 21st to 24th and 31 to 34th weeks are often prone to drought in Kharif and 41st to 47th weeks are affected in Rabi. Probability of getting normal rainfall of norther transitional zone was only 50 per cent. Government should strengthen the forecasting schemes and should make adoption of soil and water conservation measures to be compulsory.
