Abstract

The characteristics of the onset and cessation of the rains investigated in this study are early, normal and late onset and cessation. The spatial pattern of these parameters were investigated for Nigeria using rainfall and potential evapotranspiration data analyzed for the period between 1959-1990. It is observed that the occurence of onset and cessation of the rains in Nigeria is generally erratic. The significance of the observations of the study to selection of crops for cultivation and schedule of planting dates have been noted
