Bulgaria: Lower potato production this year due to weather

Bulgaria’s potato production will be smaller this year due to the lack of appropriate weather conditions, as reported by Ventsislav Kaimakanov, chairman of the National Association of Potato Producers (NAC), in an interview to Focus News.

"In 2017, the potato harvest will be notably reduced because of the climatic conditions. Losses have been recorded in many fields, so the production will be smaller than in previous years," he explained. Kaimakanov noted that problems were reported in all major production areas, including Samokovsky, Pazardzhik, Smolyan, Gotse Delchev and others. "Colleagues in other countries also have very small yields, and that’s why we expect a competitive price," added Kaimakanov.

He also explained that "about 450,000 tonnes are needed every year to meet the Bulgarian demand. In the best case scenario, with ideal weather conditions, we will have from 200 to 250,000 tonnes, so the remaining 200-250 thousand tonnes will come from abroad."
