30% reduction of rice yield caused by cracking of drought land in Anhui and Jiangxi

Original title: more land in Jiangxi Province, Anhui province suffered from severe drought and 70% less rainfall than in previous years

The drought in many areas of Anhui and Jiangxi is still serious! The main reason lies in the fact that since July, high temperature and little rain have occurred in many areas in the south of China. The high temperature has accelerated the evaporation of water vapor, dried up rivers, and the lack of rain has further deepened the drought in Jiangxi and Anhui. According to the rainfall statistics, the rainfall is 70% less than the previous years, and the land is cracked.

Dry land cracking

Since late July, there has been a large range of high temperature and little rain in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River and parts of the south of the Yangtze River. Recently, the National Committee for disaster reduction and the Ministry of emergency management launched the national level IV emergency response to the recent severe drought in the two provinces. The Ministry of agriculture and rural areas has once again sent a drought relief working group to further supervise and guide the drought relief work in the drought affected areas of the two provinces.
