England underwent driest July in almost 90 years

The UK has experienced months of low rainfall and high temperatures. In fact, last month was the driest July recorded in England in almost 90 years. The British government's environmental agency has warned that if the dry conditions continue, "many parts of England will move into drought."

The combination of low rainfall and successive heat waves has hit farmers hard. Some are already seeing their crop yields decline. Vegetables like broccoli and brussels sprouts should be planted now to harvest in the winter, but with much of their land parched, some farmers are delaying planting the new crop.
