La période couverte correspond à la mise en place des cultures de grande saison pour les Régions couvertes. Sur le plan météorologique, les prévisions de retard de la saison des pluies ont été confirmées, et il a été constaté une faiblesse des précipitations par rapport à la normale. Cela a perturbé la saison agricole et plus particulièrement le début de la période de mise en culture.
