Větrný Jeníkov (Jihlavsko) – Representatives of the Intersucho project will today at a meeting with users in Větrný Jeníkov in Jihlavsko evaluate the development of the weather last year and present assumptions about the development of the weather this year. Among the users of the project are primarily farmers, but also, for example, foresters. The project has been helping farmers in planning seasonal work for several years and is supported by scientists from the Institute of Global Change Research of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and Mendel University in cooperation with the State Land Office.
