The lack of rainfall is bad for rapeseed growers

Kozsuch Kornél said they estimated that farmers sowed rapeseed on 9,700 hectares last autumn, compared to about 14,000 hectares last year. But due to the dry autumn and winter, approximately 100 millimeters of rainfall has been missing from the farmland since September 2021. (MTI)
