    “No region is spared. Every day that passes, we see the soil cracking. Even in the North, the cereals are thirsty. If it continues like this, those who have the possibility of irrigating will get by, the others will have dramatic drops in yield,” warned Christiane Lambert on Monday. Guest of Jean-Pierre Elkabbach on Saturday, the president of the National Federation of Farmers’ Unions (FNSEA), confirmed these words: “We are really in situations of proven drought in many territories. When we hear the weather with temperatures like 29 to 32 degrees, it’s quite unimaginable in May, it’s unheard of.”

    Occitanie, the Rhône Valley, Loire-Atlantique, Pays de Loire, Poitou-Charentes too, the Great West, the Vosges are the regions and departments most affected by this drought.
