Abstract: The paper sought to analyse the effects of rainfall and temperature variability on the production of grain crops in Akim Achiase. Data from the Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMA) and the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) were collected and analysed using graphs, chi-square, and regression. The study failed to reject the null hypotheses that no relationship exist between the average annual rainfall and temperature, and the quantities of maize and rice produced annually. The recommendations for containing the negative effects of climate variability on grain crop production include; an effective synergy between the Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMA) and the farmers.
