Abstract: The success or failure of crops particularly under rainfed condition is closely linked with the amount and distribution pattern of rainfall. The knowledge of onset of effective monsoon (OEM), its withdrawal, period of occurrence and distribution of dry spells during monsoon months are essential for crop planning and management of rainfed farming. The study on “Dry spells in Yavatmal district using geoinformatics” was undertaken with specific objectives of rainfall analysis at taluka level for onset of effective monsoon (OEM), dry spells and withdrawal of effective monsoon in Yavatmal district according to Ashok Raj (1979) criteria. The average monsoon seasonal rainfall in different taluka stations varied from 556.75 to 890.32 mm with coefficient of variation of 25 to 49 percent. The mean dates of onset and withdrawal of effective monsoon varied from 18th to 29th June and 17th September to 4rd October respectively at different taluka places in Yavatmal district. The average monsoon seasonal rainfall during low, medium and high rainfall years varied from 409.2 to 616.7 mm, 549.9 to 938.5 mm and 702.2 to 1201.0 mm respectively. The critical dry spells (CDS) in Yavatmal district varied from 1 to 3 in number during different years with an average of 2 Critical Dry Spells (CDS). The average starting date of CDS (in different monsoon months) varied from 19th to 28th June, from 13th to 24th July, from 12th to 20th August and from 6th to 19th September. The highest probability of occurrence of dry spells of different duration (2 to 3, 3 to 4, 4 to 5 and more than 5 week) during August, followed by September (except for 2 to 3 week duration dry spell) and July or June at almost of all talukas in Yavatmal district. The spatial variation of probability of occurrence of different duration dry spells indicated the maximum chances of occurrence in Arni, Darwha, Digras, Yavatmal, Babulgaon and Ner talukas and some parts of Ghatanji, Mahagaon and Kalamb taluka as compared to remaining talukas in Yavatmal district. The temporal variation in occurrence of different duration dry spells in four monsoon months indicated higher temporal variation in number of occurrence of 2 to 3 weeks duration events in all the monsoon months, followed by 3 to 4 weeks duration dry spell event only in August and September month and 4 to 5 week duration dry spell events in the month of August in different talukas of Yavatmal district. The spatial variation of available water holding capacity of soil in different talukas of Yavatmal district indicated that the available water holding capacity of the soils in the study area varies from 10 to 14 cm per meter depth of soil
Description: For the assessment of onset of effective monsoon (OEM), dry spells and withdrawal of monsoon 20 years (1998 to 2017) daily rainfall data of sixteen talukas in Yavatmal district and 19 talukas from districts adjoining to Yavatmal district was analyzed. The average date of earliest, mean and delayed onset and withdrawal of effective monsoon was estimated. The critical dry spells at different taluka places of Yavatmal district during monsoon month were analyzed.
Subject: Soil and Water Engineering
Theme: In this study average dates of onset of effective monsoon, withdrawal of monsoon and initiation of dry spells are estimated which can helps farmers for deciding the sowing date, cropping pattern and planning for protective irrigation and intercultural operarions.
Research Problem: The study was undertaken to study the rainfall analysis at taluka level for onset of effective monsoon (OEM), dry spells and withdrawal of effective monsoon in Yavatmal district. The researcher has also tried to study the spatial and temporal variability of dry spells in Yavatmal district & was analyzed using starting dates of dry spells of different severity/duration. The spatial variation of soil moisture availability in Yavatmal district was also studied using geoinformatics.
