The seeds germinates even in dry conditions
Long-term drought is most noticeable in Záhorie and the south-west of the country, but significantly less precipitation than in the past was also recorded in Kysucie or Orava. This has the greatest impact on agriculture. Researchers have developed a superabsorbent - a substance that is a source of moisture. It helps to germinate seeds, even if there is not enough moisture in the soil.
