Sofia, Bulgaria: The Deputy Agricultural Minister Ivan Hristanov, speaking yesterday, informed that the Balakan state this year is expecting a good grain harvest. Adding to the statement, he also noted there are strong indications that it will be harvested on time.
During his speech, the minister then highlighted the challenges faced by the farmers in the past months, especially during the tough times of the COVID-19 pandemic. He added that the Agriculture Ministry is making every possible effort continuously in order to provide support to the farmers and the sector, following which a constant direct dialogue is being conducted with the farmers.
Bulgarian wheat has proved to be qualitative, which has assisted the production of bakery products that meet consumers’ high standards.
“I am very glad to point out that we expect an extremely good cereal harvest, which will be more than enough to provide the necessary quantities for domestic consumption, as well as for export to third countries. In recent years, grain production in Bulgaria has grown, thanks to the steady trend of increasing average yields and the increasing use of modern agricultural machinery in the field”, the Deputy Agriculture Minister further added.
This is indeed good news for the European country, which is struggling to be back on track from the impacts caused by the pandemic.
