The present study was carried out in the Department of Agricultural Meteorology, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. The aim of study was to find out the effect of drought on kharif crop production in Haryana during 1987 to 2016. Total 21 districts were selected i.e. 13 districts of eastern zone and 8 districts of western zone and the rainfall data of all districts were taken from India Meteorological Department for a period of 1987 to 2016.Haryana state lies in Trans-Gangetic plain and lies between 27⁰ 39’ N to 30⁰ 55’ N latitude and 74⁰ 27’ E to 77⁰ 36’ E longitude with an area of 44,212 km2i.e. 1.3 per cent of the total area of the country. To identify the drought years, IMD criteria of rainfall deviation from normal was used. The effect of drought on kharif crops was analyzed by using correlation and scatter plot. Rice, Bajra, maize and cotton showed negative relationship with rainfall, whereas moong crop showed positive relationship with rainfall where these crops were grown. The adverse effects of drought on crop productivity were nullified by the assured irrigation facilities. The increased rainfall decreased the productivity by favouring the high incidence of pest and diseases except moong crop which were grown in summer season and relish the rainfall.
