Interviewer instructions
You must probe by asking about the specific weather events listed under Question 3 - droughts, floods, hail storm, frosts, lightening, and rainstorms. Do not include pests or non-weather events - we will ask about these in other questions. Also, make sure the respondent includes events that affected the crop output - not crop storage. So, if a flood caused stored crops to be damaged, this should not be listed here (other questions will ask about stored crops).
