Shortage of rainfall in Belgium in 2017-2018 and 2019.
When inquiring for prices of products of the agro-industry, people are wondered why we always put ‘lack of rainfall’ forward as one of the main reasons for uninterrupted price increases.
Below you will see the lack of quantity of rainfall, when compared to the usual height of the water tabel (ground water) :
– 2017 : 220 liter/m² short
– 2018 : 350 liter/m² short
– 2019 : 300 liter/m² short
Perhaps the private consumer will not like to hear it, but we definitely needs lots of rain in the months to come, so that nature can recuperate.
