Smaller, good-quality crop in Bulgaria

| September 26, 2012

Bulgarian tobacco producers and traders are predicting that this season’s leaf prices will be 10 to 20 per cent higher than those of last season because a smaller, good-quality crop has been produced this year.

According to a Sofia Globe story, tobacco yields in Bulgaria this year will be lower than those of last year because of a drought that affected tobacco-growing areas.

A tobacco trading company representative, Krassimira Nedeva, told Bulgarian National Radio that there were no concerns about a tobacco shortage this year despite the lower yields.
