Classical statistical distributions were recognized tool in case of different areas such as biological science, economics, finance, engineering and environmental science. But these types of distribution have some limitations for modeling real data. Researchers are trying to find out the best performing statistical distribution for modeling environmental data by adding extra parameters in these existing distributions which provide super flexibility in modeling. These extend to new families of these distributions generally defined as G-family distribution. Rainfall is one of the most important natural resources for agricultural production. The excess and deficit amount of rainfall sometimes be dangerous for agriculture production. So, the prior knowledge about the pattern of rainfall will help to solve food insecurity, water erosion and water pollution problems. In this study we compare the performance of Gamma uniform G, Log gamma G type-I, Log gamma G type-II , Marshall-Olkin G and Weibull G distribution where we consider lomax, f, chen and Weibull distribution as baseline distribution for modeling the rainfall data in case of Rajshahi district Bangladesh. The monthly rainfall data from January 1971 to December 2020 consider as study period. The empirical study shows that Marshall-Olkin Chen distribution gives better fitting results in case of Rajshahi district. This study will help policy makers to become aware of upcoming situations for solving water related problems.
