This study examines the relationship between the average precipitation by depth measured in millimeters (mm) per year, and the crop production index for the years 2015 through 2020. The crop production index measures the total agricultural crop productions relative to the base time of 2014 to 2016, for countries around the world. This study uses regression analysis to examine this relationship. The regression studied 154 total observations for the total crop production for these regions. Contrary to conventional belief, this study found no statistical relationship between the average precipitation depth and the crop production index at any given level of significance.
