Drought threatens Argentina's grain harvests

Crop fields in Arrecifes in eastern Argentina are dried up and abandoned as the country loses half of its seasonal soybean harvest due to drought.

"It hasn't rained for several months." says a farmer. "We lost practically all the winter crops."
Three successive years of drought have raised fears in Argentina that this year's harvest, particularly of soybeans, will be significantly reduced, striking a blow to the South American country's exports and its domestic supplies.
