He disclosed that the shorter rainfall will affect the Federal Government's policy on agriculture and food security.

Mashi, said that rainwater harvesting should be encouraged during the rainy season to enable it's availability during the dry season and support farming during the dry season later in the year.

According to him; "In 2017 Katsina is expected to experience the earliest cessation date around October 4th 2017. Early cessation of rainfall is predicted in many parts of the North and inland of the south east during 2017.
