Argentina Drought Ongoing

The drought in Argentina which has lasted around eighteen months now is ongoing, with only southern and eastern parts of Buenos Aires province receiving beneficial rains in June:

As it happens the south and east of Buenos Aires province is the country's most productive wheat growing area, accounting for around half of national production.

The other main growing areas are the eastern half of Cordoba, western Santa Fe and eastern La Pampa, which have all had less than half of normal rainfall during June.
