Mexican Agriculture Minister Alberto Cardenas Jimenez has inspected fields in the drought-hit central state of Puebla and pledged 174 million pesos (about 13.4 million U.S. dollars) to help farmers tide over difficulties, the ministry said Wednesday.

Accompanied by state governor Mario Marin Torres, Cardenas Jimenez flew over corn, bean and barley fields in drought-hit regions of Cholula, Tecamachalco, Juan N Mendez and Libres Valley,the ministry said in a statement.

The officials also visited fish farms, tomato greenhouses and a water conservation project, it said.

Mexico has recently been suffering from the effects of low rainfall, which has hit water supplies for cities and irrigation systems for crops.
