The data records of crop productivity shows wide fluctuations from one year to another, these being influencedsignificantly by the conditions climate variability. In general, climate variability affects all sectors of the economy,but, in particular, the agricultural sector it is the most exposed. This study aims an statistical analyze the effectsinduced by climatological factors on the main agricultural crops, quantified in agroclimatic risks at local andregional levels, for the period 1990-2000, in Ialomita county. Thus, we used statistical data relating to the twogroups of variables: 1) agricultural productions (for the main crops – wheat and rye, corn, sunflower, sugar beet,potatoes, vegetables) and 2) climatology data (for the main climatological factors – average temperatures, rainfall,the sunshine duration and the nebulosity) and we analysed the possible correlations for those major variables.
