The report describes the key trends in Bulgarian agriculture. Most of the key statistics are presented in comparison with other CEE countries and more developed economies.
First, we describe what role agriculture has been playing in the Bulgarian economy and society for the last 20 years in comparison with other CEE countries and western economies. These includes data such as the share of agriculture of total GDP, employment, or the detailed use of agricultural land, including the forest industry, for example.

Next, we describe the key crops Bulgarians harvest and major trends in Bulgarian consumption habits, ranging from their consumption of meat, beer, or cheese to fruit and vegetables, for example.
