Abstract: Climate change has very significant impact on livelihoods and food security, a concrete plan with synergic approach including integrated watershed management and traditional ecological practices will help to fulfill crop water demand and maintain adequate soil moisture for the present and future crops, Chhattisgarh state is located in central India. Seasonal Rabi and Zaid crop is dependent on the irrigation system, Climate change is environmental phenomenon which can be of meteorological and hydrological depending upon its stage – rainfall level of impacts on hydrological cycle and agro-ecosystems. Agricultural is one of the most affecting economies in study area. Agricultural has been a recurrent phenomenon in many part of India. Remote sensing plays an important role for near-real time monitoring of the crop condition over large area. In the present study LANDSAT-8 data from 2013, 2014, 2017 and 2018 were used for seasonal Rabi and Zaid crop monitoring through NDVI based Vegetation condition index. VCI was calculated for whole study area. Results revealed that VCI could capture spatial pattern of vegetation condition and dryness within seasons and across different years, the results show that Janjgir-Champa district in selected Pamgarh & Nawagarh Tehsil in Chhattisgarh, India.
