Rainfall Situation
According to FEWSNET, given the poor 2003 November/December rains, the performance of the main agricultural season now depends on rainfall during January-March 2004. During the first five dekades of 2004, rainfall improved somewhat, especially during the last 10 days of January. However, cumulative rainfall is still below normal in most parts of the country. In addition, both the spatial and temporal distribution of rains has been patchy and erratic thus increasing the likelihood of a poor harvest in many areas.
