Abstract:

Agricultural drought has become a prime concern worldwide because of its severe effect on productivity of rain-fed crops and indirect effect on employment as well as per capita income. These agricultural droughts occur due to short term moisture stresses. This work was carried out to analyze droughts in the Mewar region of Rajasthan using Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI). SPI_1 and SPI_3 which are representatives of short term drought are used for analysis. Its application can be related closely to meteorological types of drought along with short-term soil moisture and crop stresses. Efforts have been made in monitoring the temporal and spatial extent of drought in the region. Study indicated that region affected by short term droughts frequently in the past three decades.


Keywords: Standardized precipitation index, Short term, Spatial and temporal.
