Bulgaria will definitely keep its status of large exporter of grain, this country’s Minister of Agriculture and Food Desislava Taneva said. According to the pessimistic forecast, Bulgaria will harvest 4.5 million tons of grain. We are expecting that yield will reach 5 million tons. The European Commission even forecasts that Bulgaria will harvest 5.8 million tons of grain. This will allow Bulgaria to guarantee the necessary quantities of grain for bread and forage and maintain its traditional export volumes. We are expecting a good yield, although precipitation is lower than normal, Minister Taneva added.
