Agroclimatological assessment of intensity of proneness to and areal spread of crop droughts
The comparative nature of and drawbacks to be avoided in assessment of crop droughts are pointed out. The methodology of Venkataraman (1979) for assessing the extent of crop transpiration deficits from monthly rainfall data, is detailed. Criteria derived from these deficits for assessment of (i) crop-drought intensity, (ii) degree of proneness to drdughts and (iii) areal spread of droughts in a year are presented. The practical relevance and application of the study are mentioned.
