Agricultural droughts and crop planning – A case study For western Rajasthan
The frequencies of occurrence of agricultural droughts in respect of pearlmillet and kharif pulses were worked out for three stations in western Rajasthan representing semi-arid, arid and extremely arid types of climates. Based on the minimum required values of AE/PE for these crops, the intensities of drought during different cropping seasons (1956-1975) were worked out. The study brought out that kharif pulses are more susceptible to drought than pearlmillet. Also the vulnerability of pearlmillet to drought under early, normal and late receipt of sowing rains under Jodhpur conditions were presented.
