Abstract:

Agro-climatic characterization for Agro-climatic zone of Chhattisgarh was carried out in the Department of Agricultural Meteorology, I.G.K.V. Raipur to capture the agricultural and climatic features which in turn help for sustainable agriculture development in Chhattisgarh. A detailed study was carried out for Chhattisgarh state by considering the district wise rainfall for the period 1901-2010. When the rainfall was examined it was found that the rainfall was in decreasing trend in all the districts during the post- global warming period. The annual rainfall during post-global warming period decreased by about 30-40% in Mahasamund area as compared to pre-global warming period. In southern Chhattisgarh (Bastar) and parts of northern Chhattisgarh the decrease of rainfall during post-global warming period ranged between 10-20%. In central part of Chhattisgarh state the decrease of rainfall ranged between 20-30 percent. The result of LGP reveals that the highest >120 days was recorded in Bastar, Bijapur and Dantewada district and the lowest <110 days was recorded in Bilaspur, Dhamtari, Durg, Janjgir, Mahasamund, Raigarh, Raipur, Kawardha and Rajnandgaon.
