The present study aims to identify the climatic fluctuations and changes and evaluate the water balance and calculate the moisture index for climatic types of the Durg district of Chhattisgarh. The study is based on secondary data. The analysis of monthly rainfall data of 12 stations for a period of thirty three years i.e. 1972-2005 and average monthly potential evapotranspiration data of Durg station. These data are used to calculate water balance of the region to know the actual climatic condition, aridity and moisture indices occurs (Thornthwaite and Mather 1954).
A trend of decline and high fluctuation of rainfall amounts during the last few decades have affected the agricultural production adversely. Such situation necessitates a detail study of the different aspects of agro climatology of the region,. The climatic fluctuation shows the alarming situations for the cultivators in the region . Every year the climatic situations are forced changed. There for the predictability about agricultural production and climatic conditions are not possible.
