Climate change projections predict an increase in the frequency of summer drought, flood and inland water, and further decline in precipitation, which can cause significant problems in Hungarian agriculture. Using questionnaire and interview surveys we investigated the perception of climatic effects on agricultural production and explored lay knowledge on climate change and the adaptation capacity of rural population. Hence, our study will consider the farming experiences and ideas that could help farmers in successful adaptation to environmental stress. It is also important to show, how the successful adaptation techniques vary regionally, depending from the factor of the landscape (i.e. spatiality).
