Fonds-Verrettes and drought

After five months of drought Fonds-Verrettes received rains this April. Farmers had already given up after losing their seeds during the drought that hit the area from November 2012 to march 2013. The region normally receives rains in March a time when most of the farmers have sowed their crops. The harvest time is usually in May.

The situation is desperate and local farmers have made an outcry for emergency response.
