There was still plenty of rain in 2018 but it fell mostly at the wrong time and thus didn't benefit the crops. The up side is that this is pushing up the price of grain which is good for the farmers who are still making it.

There may have to be a shift towards more drought-tolerant varieties. Or more imports from areas not so affected.
There was enough rain, just enough, but the tendency is heading downwards, IF (a big if) the summer of 19/20/21 etc. is consistent with 17 and 18 then we could be looking at a real problem.
