82% of communities have crop failures



The rainy season starts in September...if the rains come later, often people can re sow crops in December, or sow dry crops (sorgham instead of maize)...

If the rains haven't come by January, there will be a famine, although most people store grain enough for two years, so they can tolorate one dry season. Since there was crop failure for two years so far, it doesn't take an expert to say that famine will be a problem...
