Abstract:

In rainfed agriculture, rainfall has a crucial role to play for suitable crop planning. One hundred nineteen years (1901-2019) annual rainfall data has been analysed to find out yearly meteorological drought occurrence at Damoh district shows that maximum rain 1874.6 mm is in1990 and minimum rainfall is 614 mm in 1993. Annual average rainfall is 1196 mm. Based on rainfall analysis, it was found that during 119 years no severe and extreme drought year was experienced. However, there was 15 moderate drought (1913, 1918, 1941, 1965, 1966, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1991, 1992, 1993, 2006, 2007, 2014 and 2017) and 45 mild drought (1901, 1902, 1903, 1904, 1905, 1907, 1908, 1909, 1910, 1911, 1912, 1914, 1920, 1921, 1924, 1927, 1928, 1930, 1950, 1952, 1953, 1954, 1957, 1964, 1968, 1972, 1974, 1975, 1979, 1981, 1984, 1986, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2009, 2012, 2015, 2018 and 2019) years. The decreasing trend in damoh district and coefficient of determination R2=0.004 indicating only 0.4% of the variation in annual rainfall can be explained by the regression model. To reduce the problem of water scarcity in drought years, proper rain water harvesting must be done.
