Risk analysis for kharif crop production under rainfed conditions in Nagaur district
The planting schedules, the probabilities of occurrence of sowing rains and the chances of getting satisfactory yield for crops of 75 to 90 days duration at five different stations in Nagaur district are presented. The study reveals that short duration crops are less risky compared to medium duration crops. The low yields in respect of medium duration crops is due to the fact that crops suffer moisture stress during physiological maturity stage. This can be avoided to some extent either by transplanting the crops around 26th week or by providing supplementary irrigation during the stress period with the surplus water harvested if any. Measures to be taken under severe to moderate stress condition have also been indicated. The possibilities of raising rabi crops under conserved moisture condition in the high rainfall zones have been examined.
