Agriculture takes a beating in Henan province

CCTV (July 29, 2014) | In central China’s Henan Province, the drought is one of the most severe in history seen in the province. Farmers in Jia County, Henan Province have the least amount of water for irrigation for 40 years. They can do no more than stand helplessly by, watching their crops wilt in the dry fields. The drought has brought near disaster to other parts of the province as well. The Baiguishan Reservoir, the major source of drinking water in Pingdingshan City, is at dead storage level.
