Current state of drought monitoring in Poland requires further research to improve both traditional and remote sensing-based methods. More profitable drought-resistant crop varieties need to be developed for drought-
prone regions. Local and regional irrigation needs for agriculture should be identified following a detailed assessment of water resources in Poland. Determining the probability and frequency of droughts using long-term climatic data will be an important part of a drought early-warning system. Vegetation and soil moisture indices derived from remotely sensed data must be refined for early detection of drought conditions and to improve yield models and early warning systems.
