Agricultural land prices in Bulgaria have increased more than 6 times in the last 10 years. If in 2010 one decare (4 acres) of land cost an average of BGN 287 (EUR 146.74), then in 2022 the price is already BGN 2,787 (EUR 1,424.97), according to data from the Association of Agricultural Land Owners in Bulgaria. Traditionally, the most expensive is the fertile land in the Dobrudja plain, but prices are higher there because buyers aim to use it to build RES parks. According to the industry, land fragmentation and lack of irrigation remain the most serious problems facing Bulgarian agriculture. The country has more than 52 million decars of agricultural land, 69% of which is arable.
