To evaluate the distribution rainfall more accurately, a model to daily data and simulate for long duration of data will be required. Before checking these simulated payouts against the observed payouts, it is recommended to perform a series of rainfall simulation models and trend analyses. The object is to predict the intensity of rainfall and compare its crop yield at different spots in Nasarawa state. The simulation was used and variant rainfall trend analysis was applied. The result indicates that there is a significant correlation between the rainfall at Nasarawa and Keffi. However, modern uses of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers can lead to different crop performance and yields. Rainfall output in Nasarawa is higher than that of Keffi as compared based on the simulation result.
