# A general drought in the world, raises the total income that farmers receive?

I need to write 6-7 lines explaining why is the following statement true:

A drought around the world raises the total revenue that farmers
receive from the sale of grain, but a drought only in
Kansas reduces the total revenue that Kansas farmers


I have few answers in my mind, but I have no economy training so it's really difficult for me to express my self using economic terms.

Is anyone kind to provide me a comprehensive answer.
