Thousands of hectares of rice and corn have been damaged. “WFP is concerned about the long-term food security implications for those farmers whose crops have been devastated by floods, particularly since some of the damaged crops were due to be harvested in September,” Marcus Prior, WFP’s Bangkok-based regional spokesperson, told AlertNet.
