Algeria cereal crop seen down 40 pct after drought –farm union

ALGIERS (Reuters) - Algeria’s cereal crop is expected to drop by 40 percent this harvest after the worst drought in decades, the head of the country’s farmers’ union said on Thursday.

The cereal output fall comes as Algeria seeks to reduce imports to offset a sharp decline in energy earnings that has hit state finances.
