Abstract

The Bundelkhand region, one of the most vulnerable locations in central India, is prone to severe drought and crop failure attributed to annual rainfall fluctuation. In this study, basic statistics were utilized to determine the variances in rainfall across different districts in the Bundelkhand zone for 30 years (1987-2016) The average annual rainfall was found to be maximum for Damoh district (1169.24 mm) followed by Sagar district (1163.04 mm), Panna district (1118.79 mm), whereas it was minimum for Jalaun district (774.91 mm) followed by Datia district (841.61 mm), Hamirpur district (849.30 mm). In this study period in the year 2010 received low annual rainfall. The average seasonal rainfall was found to be maximum for Sagar district (1075.52 mm) followed by Damoh district (1073.40 mm), Panna district (1008.74 mm) whereas was minimum for Jalaun district (701.11 mm) followed by Datia district (769.1 mm). In this 30 year 1990 real received low seasonal rainfall. This research demonstrates the rainfall pattern over the study region and indicates susceptible locations that are more likely to face water stress as a result of rainfall variability.
