This was announced by Bulgaria's State Fund for Agriculture.

Requests are no longer being taken for the implementation of measures to support the withdrawal or non-harvesting of tomatoes, cucumbers, gherkins, carrots, sweet peppers, cabbage, cauliflower, mushrooms, apples, pears, raspberries, table grapes and plums.

The possibility to request compensation measures remains only for peaches and nectarines until the permitted quantity of 950 tonnes, complemented by the agricultural fund, is also reached.
