Data on droughts and floods and their impacts on croplands and production are important for policy makers and the scientific community. This dataset was developed to provide data of the impacts of droughts and floods on agriculture in the Monsoon Climate Region and Equatorial Climate Region of Southeast Asia during the crop growing seasons over a 40-year period between 1980 and 2019. The data were generated using the TerraClimate global high-resolution gridded Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) datasets in Google Earth Engine along with a set of algorithms. Datasets were available on 47,192 grid points of a 10 × 10 km resolution containing PDSI, their latitude longitude between 1980 and 2019 with five years interval, monthly temporal PDSI data, cropland drought and flood intensity data between 1980 and 2019.
