- Indicator-based monitoring and forecasting water deficit and surplus in agriculture in Poland. Since 2012, the Institute of Technology and Life Sciences has been conducting national agrometeorological monitoring in rural areas of Poland. Current and forecasted information on the status and impact of water deficit and surplus in selected, representative agricultural ecosystems and potential reduction of crop yield are being provided annually in the period from April to October. The required meteorological data are provided by a network of automatic stations located in 13 regions on the Polish territory. Weather forecasts, necessary to develop predictions of water shortages or surplus in the next 10 and 20 days, come from the meteorological service of Meteo- Group Poland. Results of the monitoring and forecasts are presented as maps, graphs and tables on the website.
