The impact of the institutional changes on the land relations in Bulgaria over the last 30 years is in response to the number of processes and changes that have taken place before and after the accession of the country to the European Union. The Ownership and Use of Agricultural Land Act, logically, has undergone the most changes (more than 70 changes by 2020). This dynamic of the Ownership and Use of Agricultural Land Act reveals the existence of real issues in the socio-economic system of agriculture and the need to solve them. The existence of favourable soil and climatic conditions, long-standing traditions, rich practical experience, availability and development of new technological solutions and market-oriented innovations, use of modern varieties with improved biological potential, as well as the changes in the Land Act, clarifying the use of agricultural land, outline the future trends for the development of vegetable production in Bulgaria related to the harmonization of the institutional framework in compliance with the requirements of the EU – regulatory framework, strategies and programmes related to land market regulation. The purpose of this article is to analyse the changes in the new Agricultural Land Act, by assessing their impact on the status and dynamic of the vegetable sector, which is one of the most vulnerable sectors in the agricultural industry, as well as the complex processes of fragmentation of agricultural land in Bulgaria. The methodical framework of the study provides a summary overview of the main changes in the new Agricultural Land Act, as well as the degree of fragmentation of the land, which has a direct connection to the position of both parties in negotiation.
