Cropping pattern of Konkan region on the basis of probabilistic rainfall and soil characteristics
Keywords:Assured rainfal, Probability, Terrain, Texture, Cultivation, Cropping pattern, Water management, Kharland, Laterite soil.
ABSTRACT- Cropping pattern at any place of humid tropics basically depends on soils and efficient management of abundant rainfall. Climate of Konkan region IS warm and humid. Rainfall is very high and varies usually from 200 to 350 cm. Rainfall probability has been computed at different levels of 16 stations of this region by fitting Gamma distribution model to weekly rainfall total. The existing cropping pattern was studied in relation with assured rainfall at different probability levels. Suitable cropping patterns based on assured rainfall and soils of the region have been suggested to increase production.
