Due to global warming there is observed an increasing trend of drought damage in agriculture in Austria. Especially in the east of Austria enormous financial losses occured in the past decades. In this study methods are investigated to estimate the level of drought severity by means of agro-meteorological models. These methods include the Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI), the FAO-model and the test-model of the Austrian hail insurence. Whereas the SPI only provided large-scale results, the two other models also presented results at field level.
