AMMAN — Low levels of precipitation in the northern regions of the Kingdom are causing concern among farmers, Director-General of the Jordan Farmers Union Mahmoud Al-Oran said on Thursday.اضافة اعلان

This is despite heavy rains in the southern and eastern regions of the Kingdom, he said, which occurred due to atmospheric instability, according to Khaberni.

The decline in average precipitation in the north will lead to low wheat and barley production, and will negatively affect water harvesting activities and spring water, Oran explained.

However, weather forecasts suggest that the Kingdom will receive some precipitation in the month of February, he added.

“We must be careful and take precautions,” he said, pointing to the need for scientific studies that determine trees that can tolerate weak rainfall and the Jordanian climate.
