OSLO, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- About 10,000 Norwegian farmers will get a supplement of 310 million kroner (36.9 million U.S. dollars) for this year's summer drought and its consequences, newspaper Aftenposten reported Monday.
While more than 286 million kroner will be given to livestock farming, a small part, 24.5 million kroner, will go to vegetable farming, the report said.
The payments will go to farmers from ten Norwegian counties, according to the Norwegian Agriculture Agency.
The payments are part of the agreement that was entered into during the additional negotiations for the agricultural settlement as a result of the extremely dry summer and come in addition to the crop damage compensation that farmers could apply for by the end of October.
The drought in the summer has caused both crop failure and lack of feed. (1 U.S. dollar = 8.40 Norwegian kroner)
