Abstract (Original Language): 
The study area is located in the drought prone areas of Solapur district in western part of the Maharashtra. Thus annual rainfall conditions differ from region to region. In spite of the technological developments in providing improved crop varieties and better management practices in Solapur district, agriculture has been considered a gamble as the agricultural productivity is strongly influenced by the vagaries of the monsoon. The drought prone area in the district on annual rainfall occurs once in five years. The average annual rainfall is 561 mm. The computation of eleven tahsilwise annual rainfall use help of mean, S.D. and coefficient of rainfall variability shows the choropleth map. This attempt has been made to 2000 to 2010 annual rainfall in Solapur district
