Spain: Drought threatens asparagus in Granada

Asparagus production in 2016 decreased by 30% and, if does not rain immediately, things will get much worse. Paco Delgado, from Los Gallombares, said that if they didn't get 300 liters of rain per square meter in the remainder of the year, the harvest in 2017 would be greatly affected.
