I just got back from 2 days in South Lebanon. I write this as a reminder: It hasn't rained since February 25. In places where wheat should be at least 1 m high it is still less than 30 cm. If rain doesn't come soon, yields will be very low. Even if it comes soon, yields will still be low. Read this in context with the several folds increase in the international prices of wheat.
