President calls for rational water management
Polish President Andrzej Duda appealed for rational management of water resources, shortly after meeting with fruit growers in Dylewo, central Poland, on Tuesday.
During a meeting with Agriculture Minister Jan Krzysztof Ardanowski and fruit growers in Dylewo, the president noted that the farmers had not yet signaled any problems with drought, yet the harvest may be weakened by frost.
Duda noted that a total of nine large retention reservoirs are planned to be built, as well as 30 smaller reservoirs and even smaller ones on individual farms.
"We need to change the approach and conduct this retention at the most basic level at every farm," he added.
Duda acknowledged that when it comes to the drought, everything will depend on the rainfall in May.
