Résumé
Gum Arabic is an important natural product obtained by tapping Acacia senegal L. A comparative study of gum arabic production in relation to annual and monthly rainfall was conducted in El Obied area in North Kordofan, using gum Arabic production data for the period 1980-2009. The objective of the study was to look into whether there is a correlation between rainfall and gum arabic production. The study used data of gum production from El Obied crop market and rainfall data from Sudan Meteorological Authority to carry out this work. The results showed that there was no clear correlation between rainfall and Gum Arabic production. The main reason is that, the production brought to the market depends on complex socioeconomic factors, which overrides the rainfall effects .The study recommended that better results may be obtained by the study of the gum production per unit area.
