Lebanon's heavy rainfall and low temperatures has not yet caused any damage to crops but farmers are worried about a storm expected to arrive in the country Saturday, said Ramiz Osseiran, head of the Farmers' Association in south Lebanon.Osseiran said that farmers who do not pick their harvest will be gravely affected by the storm.George Sakr, head of the syndicate of potato farmers in the Bekaa, said that he is personally waiting for snow and rainfall because it is beneficial for the land, especially as potatoes do not grow before February or March so this crop will not be affected.
