"The biggest producers have no problem and did not protest. They have a large enough volume of everything, so they were not there for us. The Prime Minister understood this," Prodanov said.

He explained that $40 million The acre is the arable land in Bulgaria, but only 200,000 of them are irrigated, which is why grain production in our country is so large.

Atanaska Byalkova, a greenhouse producer, commented: "I do not support the protests of grain producers. We have always been undermined – first by Greece, then tomatoes by Turkey. Imports undercut prices, but people can't understand that."

"In order to achieve a result, all industries must be together," Prodanov said.
