Rainfall has been well down on the last three months and if it does not recover many farmers will suffer  Andalucía is thought to have entered into a drought cycle, and the current 60% fall in rainfall has not been seen since 2004, and we have to go back to 1998 to see a drier time in Sevilla. Some areas of the region have seen very little rain, causing large problems for farmers especially. The Sierra Morena, the Córdoba Campina and parts of Huelva have been particularly dry, while in Santa Elena in Jaén they have seen just 32 litres per square metre, 92% down on the average since 1980. Fortunately this new drought cycle comes after three years of abundant rain; 2009 was the wettest in the last half century, and so reservoir levels are running still at an average of 75.6%. That’s still down from 84.73% a year ago. Regional delegate from AEMET, the State Meteorological Agency, Luis Fernando López Cotin, said the most affected areas are in the north and west of Andalucía, but the Regional Councillor for the Environment has called for prudence when predicting a drought cycle. Young farmers association ASAJA has warned that if it does not rain this Spring 40% of the olive harvest will be lost, and means losses of 400 million € in the province of Jaén alone.
