Rainfall occupies an important position in deciding the future planning of the cropping system in any rainfed agriculture. Indian agriculture is predominantly influenced by rainfall, specifically by the south-west monsoon (June–September). Rainfall trend is an important tool which assesses the impact of climate change and provides direction to cope up with its adverse effect on the agriculture. The Jalgaon district lies in the north-west side of Maharashtra and spreads across the Deccan Plateau in the rain shadow region of the Sahyadri mountain ranges on the northernmost tip of the state of Maharashtra. The present study entitled analysis of daily rainfall data of past years were used to compute annual rainfall and rainy days of fifteen tehsils of Jalgaon district using Mann Kendall method and Sen’s slope estimator. Annual rainfall has been increased with increasing rainy days in Erandol and Yavaltehsils Rainfall in Jalgaon, Raver, Bodhwad, and Muktainagar tehsils decreased with decreasing rainy days and rainfall of Amalner, Bhadgaon, Jamner, Pachora and Dharangaon decreased with increasing rainy days.

Keywords: Rainfall trend, Rainy days trend, Mann Kendall method, Sen’s slope method
