USA - Drought has long been part of Texas climate and will continue

No one knows better than Texas farmers and ranchers how damaging drought can be. Even a drought of short duration — just during one growing season, for instance — can knock a hole in farm income and, in some cases, put the farmstead in jeopardy. Longer dry spells, such as the one currently going on across much of the Southwest, can wipe out years of profitability and may result in losing a farm or ranch. Regardless of the advances in technology — more efficient irrigation systems, improved production methods, and varieties that perform better under dry conditions — crops won’t grow without water.

The state has lost onion crop on 14,000 hectares in just two days in December, followed by grapes, pomegranates, and rabi jowar, said a preliminary survey by the agricultural department.

"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
