Interview with Professor Petr Sklenička

Czechs will learn how to survive drought. Israeli irrigation will be tested near Lány, says Professor Sklenička.

Irrigation systems used in Israel, which is roughly two-thirds desert, will soon be used to test different ways how to prepare the Czech landscape for climate change. This summer, our scientists will travel to Israel's Volcani Center, a top research facility specialising in agriculture. "Israelis are adapted to harsh climatic conditions. We hope they will not occur here, but unfortunately we are heading towards them," says Petr Sklenička, rector of the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague. The irrigation system will be installed on five hundred hectares of the university farm near Lány. It will be part of an emerging open-air laboratory where the effectiveness of various measures against drought or erosion will be tested.
