The capsules they drop on clouds are loaded with silver iodide whose effectiveness is variable, but its use in these cases is quite widespread, the Welfare Secretariat’s authorities stated.

This week, the National Water Commission’s Drought Monitor reported that of Chihuahua’s 247,455 square kilometers, only 10 percent (24,745 hectares) is drought-free, while 90 percent is affected to varying degrees, including the highest categories.

For its part, the National Commission for Arid Regions, with the support of the Air Force, has been implementing its rain stimulation project since June to mitigate the effects of drought on agriculture.

The program also consists of releasing silver iodide molecules in the clouds to make rain and help dams receive water by using environmentally friendly technology.
