The government on Wednesday approved compensation for farmers who suffered losses due to last year’s droughts amounting to 600 million crowns. The financial support should be aimed mainly at small producers, Agriculture Minister Marián Jurečka wrote on his Twitter account. The compensation will go to farmers whose harvest last year was at least 30 percent lower than the average harvest in the previous three years. They should receive around ten percent of their average expenses. Corn, potatoes, hops and sugar beet growers were among those most affected by last year’s exceptionally dry weather.
