Drought is a natural phenomenon that is one of the most frequent natural disasters in Indonesia. Significantly reduced water availability characterizes drought over a period occurring over a large area. Thus, drought occurs due to the deviation of weather conditions, that is lower rainfall than normal conditions that occur in a region. Lebak Regency is a dry area that has average monthly or annual rainfall below normal and most agricultural activities on dry land. The research objective is to analyze the drought and plant species in Lebak Regency, Banten Province. The method of analysis used in this study is spatial analysis (spatial analysis) and statistical analysis (Chi-Square). The results found, e.g. (1) The high drought areas concentrated in the northeast and southwest regions that are far from the center of Lebak Regency. (2) The types of crops are dominated by plantations, especially outside the Capital Region of the Regency. (3) The relationship between drought and crop type is insignificant at the real level of 0.05, which means that in high drought areas it is not always planted with certain types of crops. This research concluded that drought in Lebak Regency concentrated in the northern and southern part outside the capital city and the agriculture type dominated with the plantation.
