Description

The 2017 crop year follows two years of the 3rd strongest El Niño event since 1950. Historically, very strong El Niño events have only a 25% chance of being followed by a poor crop year. However, there are other factors in play that point to an increasing risk of adverse crop weather during the coming eight years.
