Amid scorching temperatures, almost ​​65 percent of arable land in Poland has been affected by drought, according to state news agency PAP.

Aid will be granted in the form of subsidies for agricultural producers who have lost at least 30 percent of a crop due to drought or flooding.

Meanwhile, Warsaw has asked the European Commission to help Polish farmers.
