Study of the attitudes of Bulgarian farmers for the implementation of innovations
Petia Branzovaorcid, Annie Dimitrovaorcid
Abstract: The benefits of implementing innovations in agriculture are many, various and proven at a global level. The purpose of the paper is to present the attitudes of the agricultural producers concerning the implementation of technological innovations in Bulgaria. Through cluster analysis, the agricultural producers participating in a study are divided into four groups by six characteristics. This provides an insight into the main attitudes of the producers regarding agricultural innovations. The results show that agricultural producers with large capital and large holdings adopt and use innovations in their holdings. The majority of the farmers do not have a specific attitude and are neutral on the issues related to the implementation of innovations in the holdings. There are also those who are pessimistic and do not see development in the agrarian sector as a whole.
Keywords: agricultural producers; agriculture; technological innovation
