Rainfall Risk Analysis for Rainfed Agriculture in the Limpopo Basin

Walter, Sue, John, Manuel, Paiva? David?


Introduction

  • Rainfed farming

  • Crop water requirements

  • Rainfall seasonal distribution

  • Probabilities/chances/frequencies

    Materials and methods

  • Map of the basin

  • Rainfall data sources ( at least 2 stations per country)

  • Instat

  • SPI

    Results and Discussion (compare 3 catchments)

  • Maize water requirements

  • Rainfall amounts (CDFs)

  • Start and end of rain seasons

  • Frequencies

  • Dry spell probabilities

  • Drought – SPI

  • Compare maize and sorghum for all 6 stations for the above criteria

    Conclusion and recommendations
