ARID LAND

The continuing dry spell has completely dried up this farmland in La Fortuna, M’lang, North Cotabato owned by Lita Concepcion, 72, who complained that they were not able to plant again since the El Niño struck in the area in the middle of December last year. North Cotabato is already under the state of calamity as damage to agricultural crops is already placed at P670 million. (Mara S. Genotiva/ davaotoday.com)
