The rainy weather of the past few days has helped the sowing of winter rape, but it has made the harvesting of sunflower somewhat difficult – the National Department President of the National Chamber of Agriculture (NAK) told MTI.

Petőházi Tamás said that rape is sown nationwide, and rainy weather has a positive effect on seed development. He added that last year practically the rape was “dusted” by the farmers, resulting in poor or non-emergence of seeds, and in many places having to discard stocks in the spring. (MTI)
