"It is difficult to predict (how the weather may affect crops). Farmers have certain means (to save their crops), but problems are already starting to surface and if these rains continue, losses are inevitable," he said on the Žiniū Radijas radio station.

Downpours have battered Lithuania in recent weeks, causing significant damage in the southeastern part of the country.

No heavy rain is forecast for the coming week.
