Length of growing period as a criterion for identifying different drought types in Karnataka


, : Length of growing period as a criterion for identifying different drought types in Karnataka. Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 75(9): 614-615

The drought classification system presented in this paper, which is based on the amount and distribution of rainfall, length of growing period and soil types, has been found to be one of the rational approach on long term perspective planning and drought mitigation. Karnataka state in India has been demarcated into chronic, severe, moderate, mild and rarely drought prone areas based on the length of growing period.

The results showed that the length of coleoptile, first leaf and...
