Dry Spells

Erratic rainfall is expected to jeopardize Zambia's prospects of a bumper maize harvest, warned Sam Mundia, permanent secretary in the ministry of agriculture.

According to IRIN, "overall rainfall this season was adequate for crop development in most areas, with the exception of the southwestern parts of the country, where prolonged dry spells have resulted in reduced plantings and crop failure."
