"We want to sell at the prices our colleagues get in Europe, where wheat trades at 200 euro (nearly 400 leva) per tonne.
Even if we sell at a lower price, it should not be much lower. If we are not happy with prices here, we will sell abroad because Hungary, the Czech Republic, Romania and Greece have shown interest," Milev said.
The Association is negotiating about possible export of feed barley from the Pleven Region to European countries via the Danube. The organization is planning to get in contact with major buyers abroad.
Milev said the price should be at least 300 leva per tonne if farmers are to recoup expenses and make a profit so they can modernize their operations and increase competitiveness.
