Abstract

Using 11 years of data in Chupaca, Junin region, Peru, we studied the effects of extreme precipitation on the maize crop. For the project, extreme annual precipitation and temperature data were obtained from the Viques and Huayao meteorological stations of the National Meteorological and Hydrological Service of Peru, as well as crop yield and production data. The Spearman correlation method was used to carry out the research. The results indicated that in 2014 there was a higher yield of corn, and in 2011, there was the highest amount of rainfall. We conclude that extreme rainfall does not influence the yield of corn in the period under study.
