Abstract: The crop productiondirectly or indirectly depends on Weather parameters. Therefore, Weather is an important factor for agriculture practice. Present investigation was done to examine three types of model using meteorological weather variables and mustard crop yield (Productivity) inGandhinagar district of Gujarat state in India. Data were used for mustard crop during the time period 1980-81 to 2014-15. The step wise regression analysis was employed for mustard crop to determine a set of explanatory variable, which satisfied the equation and explain maximum variation in yield. Average mustard yield was considering as dependent variable and weather variables like Maximum and Minimum Temperature in degree Celsius, Relative Humidity in morning and evening in percentage, Sun-Shine hours per day and Annual Rainfall in mm as independent variables. Finally, the model which has provided the earliest forecast with high coefficient of determination, t value and minimum percentage deviation from the observed mustard average yields of Gandhinagar district was consider as suitable pre harvest forecast model.
