More than 90 percent of the area of the Czech Republic has been affected by drought, according to a report carried out by a scientific team within a project called InterSucho.
Over 72,000 square kilometres are currently affected by the drown-out period of dry weather and lack of rainfall.
According to climatologist Miroslav Trnka, a co-author of the study, there are between 40 and 80 millimetres of water lacking in the soil. The situation could only improve by a long-term, moderate rain.
