Philippines - Dry spell affected both the agriculture and fishery sectors

Agriculture officials expect farmers to have harvested their rice crops to avoid losses from the dry spell. The El Nino phenomenon or drought, which affects Region 1, has started last September and is expected to last until July this year. Weather officials said the dry spell, which was felt during the last week of February in La Union, has affected both the agriculture and fishery sectors. Department of Agriculture had advised farmers last year that they should have harvested their crops by the time the dry spell is at its peak.
USA - North Dakota winter wheat crop continues to slide

The condition of North Dakota's winter wheat crop continues to decline. The Agriculture Department says in its latest crop report that 53 percent of the winter wheat is rated in either good or excellent condition. A report earlier this month showed a combined 64 percent rating. The report says the lack of snow cover had livestock producers worried about the grazing and haying potential, but those same conditions allowed for productive lambing and calving with minimal losses.

Assuring support to flood-hit farmers in Jammu and Kashmir, the Centre on Tuesday asked the state government to utilise Rs 209 crore available under the State Disaster Relief Fund (SDRF) to compensate them from any crop loss.

India - New Crop Income Insurance Scheme – a cure worse than the disease

In the midst of the widespread damage to standing crops from unseasonal rains, a National Crop Income Insurance Scheme has been introduced on a pilot basis. What is being perceived as a long-term solution to the prevailing agrarian crisis, and is being pushed as an insurance against weather-related disasters as well as provide an assurance against any income shocks will only end up acerbating the crisis. The cure being suggested is worse than the disease itself.

Italy - Hail on melons and secondary deseases: risk event

"After yet another hailstorm in the Mantua area, and the serious downy mildew problems, we have lost over 200 hectares of melons, i.e. almost the entire July and August production," explains Ettore Cagna, chairman of Don Camillo. "Such a disaster means it will be very difficult for us to comply with the collection schedule arranged with our clients." "Of course we had planned our production at the beginning of the season according to different schedules and areas, but we lost practically everything this year!" "We are indeed preparing an emergency programme to try and reduce any inconvenience for our clients though," concludes Mr. Cagna. Source - FreshPLaza
