Abstract

The present work focused on estimating the cross-correlation between the time series of agricultural production variables and the variables of the Space Weather Wolf Number (W) in the United States, in both cases the annual averages were processed. The Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) methodology was used. The results showed that there was a causal relationship between the W and "aa" indices with all the agribusiness variables analyzed, corroborating previous results in general and in particular those obtained by other authors, which constitutes another step in the search, exploration, and confirmation of the causal relationship between Solar Activity and numerous processes in the biosphere. We consider that this type of research contributes to mitigation measures to decision makers in environmental conservation matters in food security where solar activity such as space weather intervenes.
