Successful reparcelling helped to municipality and landscape
Making accessible particular parcels, a new flood-protection and erosion-protection measures - these are some of positive results of ongoing reparcelling. The Ministry of Agriculture of the CR supports them significantly. For the present minister Ivan Fuksa the reparcelling is even one of priorities.

Minister of Agriculture Ivan Fuksa entered fischerman´s guild
The minister Ivan Fuksa underwent a fishing christening on Friday the 12th of November at a ceremonial haul of a renewed Řisutský pond. Fishermen succeeded to save the pond, far about 10 kilometers from the town Slaný, by means of a grant from the Ministry of Agriculture. The minister Ivan Fuksa stated that esteemed very much the symbolic membership in the fisherman´s guild and he hoped that Řisutský pond would become an example for other uncared-for water surfaces in the Czech Republic. “Roughly two and half hectare pond did not fulfill any flood-protection function and even it did not served to farmers and the public. After mud removing the pond is able to contain almost twenty four cubic meters of water whereby it became an efficient means for reduction of flood wave or vice versa a water reservoir for period of drought”, Ivan Fuksa stated.
