Low temperatures are expected to reduce fruit harvest in many places across Bulgaria according to Zhivka Grozdeva, member of the Management Board of the Association of Fruit Growers in Bulgaria. "Sometimes hail damages are so great that it could take years for a plant to recover. There is virtually no insurance against frost as the insurance period starts around end of April when the risk of frost or very low temperatures at night is much lower."
Small farms will be able to expand with a new kind of European agricultural subsidy. Farmers working with animals, fruits, vegetables etc. will receive grants of up to 15 thousand Euro to allow the size of the holding to grow by at least 20%. The period for the submission of applications will last from 4 July to 12 August. The total budget allocated for the programme amounts to 30 million Euro, which will go to at least 2,000 farms.
