Agriculture ministry has come up with a number of measures to help farmers whose harvest was reduced this year by lack of rain and excessive heat. Agriculture minister Petr Bendl said on Tuesday that the ministry will give affected farmers an advance on direct EU subsidies, that they would normally get a few months later. Farmers will receive a total of 9.4 billion crowns by October 16th, approximately half of the total amount for the year. This year’s agricultural yield is on average lower by one-fifth than last year’s and in some regions like South Moravia or Olomouc it is even less.
