The professional holiday of Bulgarian agricultural science, October 25th, is a well-deserved day of the calendar because for successful development, contemporary agriculture relies on its intellectual treasure – the human intellectual resource with their achievements and practical solutions applied in practice.
Bulgarian land has always been fruitful and generous. However, its goods do not come for free to our table. They are the results of human labor and cares, and the intellectual contribution of the agrarian specialists, without which rural life would not be the same.
The interaction between the agrarian practice and science gives new meaning to Bulgarian agriculture, making it more attractive and gradually turns it into a way of live, while the good farmer puts hopes in agrarian science to alleviate their agricultural work.
The increasingly strengthening relationship between agrarian science and agricultural practice makes October 5th a day of celebration for all people working in the agricultural sphere – from the scientific researcher to the ordinary agricultural worker.
Over the years, Dobrudzha Agricultural institute has gained the position of a leader in the Bulgarian agri-science community due to the joint efforts of researchers, specialists and workers. This day is a particularly pleasant occasion to congratulate ourselves for our achievements and make a wish for new ideas, creative energy for their realization, health and personal happiness!
