The Vojvodina provincial authorities banned irrigation from three reservoirs whose levels are “at the biological minimum”.

A press release from the Vode Vojvodina state waters company said that the Moravica, Zobnatica and Sava reservoirs are used by farmers to irrigate 3,200 hectares of farm land.

“High temperatures over the past month and the greatest drought since 2012 in Vojvodina caused low river water levels and a worrying drop in the water levels in some reservoirs,” the press release said adding that the three reservoirs are filled by rain, not from rivers. It said that the canal irrigation system in the north of Serbia is stable.
