The Bulgarian state allocates over 2.5 million euros to encourage farmers to insure their crops against adverse weather. The support will be provided as part of the insurance premium.

Due to the frequent droughts, floods and frosts in recent years, grain has been included for the first time in the support scheme, BNR reporter Veselina Milanova said. The maximum amount of support that can be received by a farmer who grows fruit, vegetables, essential oil crops and tobacco is up to 65% of the value of the insurance premium or up to 100 euros per hectare with total insurance premium of 153 euros per hectare.
