Wednesday, 03 September 2014
Bulgarian farmers whose agricultural land was completely destroyed by the natural disasters last year, will be compensated with a total of 4.4 million levs, the State Fund Agriculture informed.
Compensation under the scheme will be allocated to farmers who have a protocol for completely devastated agricultural land due to a natural disaster or adverse weather conditions. Those, who have not insured their land, will receive 50% of the due subsidies. The exception is for damages caused by drought, which will be paid without reduction, expert.bg informs.
A total of 335 farmers have applied under this scheme. Compensations are already being allocated to those affected. All subsidies will be paid no later than September 15, 2014.
