There is a drought in many places in the Great Plain and in the north and south-east of Transdanubia, the corn needs abundant rainfall for the optimum formation and growth of the grains, the National Meteorological Service wrote in its agrometeorological analysis yesterday.

The weather has been very hot in the last 8-10 days, with severe thunderstorms in some places, but in most parts of the country, less precipitation has fallen than is usual at this time.

Maize and sunflowers are well-developed in most places; maize is in the cresting stage, and sunflowers are in bloom.

For now, the plants can still find water in the deeper soil layer all over the country, but, especially in the Great Plain, they increasingly lack moisture.
