The financing will be awarded to producers who have grown tobacco during at least one year in the reference period 2007 - 2009, the fund said in a press release on Friday.

Tobacco producers who continue to carry out agricultural activity are entitled to receive subsidies under the programme. Owners of animal farms or bee families are also eligible for receiving subsidies.

The aid has been provided since 2015. The amount of the grants are based on the volume of the purchased tobacco and its plant variety.

Earlier last week, Bulgaria's government said it approved the disbursement of some 213 million levs in aid for farmers to help offset the rising costs of farming inputs.

(1 euro = 1.95583 levs)
