The effects of this have become visible in Q3 2020, which includes the harvesting season and when output in agriculture dropped by 31%. The crops worst affected by this drought, corn, soybeans, sunflower, wheat and grapes, are among the most important agricultural exports. Considering that agricultural and food products make up 40% of Moldova’s exports, this has a large impact on the economy as a whole. Based on the size of the agricultural sector and its predicted overall decline of 27% in 2020, we estimate that the drought would have a negative effect on GDP in the range of 2 to 3 percentage points. It is therefore clear that instead of finding stability in agriculture, Moldova suffered from a double shock in 2020 with COVID-19 and the drought.
