If this trend of warming continues, then after about 200 years, snow will become a rarity for descendants, and in August we will languish from the heat. The process of global warming will be felt most of all in the southern regions of the country - in Polesie. While we are observing the advantages, namely, an increase in the length of the growing season (the period of the year when growth and development of crops is possible), however, farmers and farm managers need to consider that in the future more drought-resistant plants will have to be grown.
