Director of Agriculture in Karak, Musab Al-Tarawneh stated that the heavy rains accompanying the recent low-pressure system will contribute to supporting and improving the agricultural season by increasing soil moisture reserves, adding that this will have a positive impact on summer crops, including legumes and field crops planted late in the western areas of the governorate, Khaberni reported.

Tarawneh noted that the rainfall reached an average of 30 mm and will contribute to increasing groundwater reserves, raising dam levels such as Mujib and Lajoun dams. It will also increase the water supply coming from water harvesting in household wells, prolonging the life of natural pasture plants, reducing the feed bill for livestock breeders, and improving the quality of tree fruits.
