Adjusting SPI for crop specific agricultural drought

Abstract

Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) is one of the most used drought monitoring tools. It is easy to compute as it only needs cumulative precipitation amount for an input. However, it is more of a meteorological drought index rather than an agricultural one. In this study, we reconstruct SPI for monitoring a specific crop by calibrating the cut-off values… (More)
