Olive trees in Holy Land are in trouble

The World

For years, Israeli and Palestinian olive farmers have relied on a two-year cycle with their trees. One year, there's lots of fruit. The next, not as much. Now, that cycle is being disrupted by climate change. The olives from this year's harvest, both Israelis and Palestinians say, were smaller than usual. So, they're looking for ways to improve irrigation and even introduce new varieties of olive trees that are more resilient in hotter temperatures with less rainfall.
