Book Review:Sustainability of Farming Enterprises in Bulgaria


  • Che, Shengquan


Around the globe understanding and assessment of sustainability of farming enterprises is among the most topical academic and practical issues. At the current stage of development and reforming of European agriculture the question about the level of sustainability of different type of farming enterprises during European Union Common Agricultural Policy (EU CAP) implementation is particularly topical. Despite that still there is no consensus on “what is sustainability of farming enterprises”, “what is the relation between farm and agrarian sustainability”, “which are the critical factors of farm sustainability”, and “how to evaluate sustainability level of farming enterprises”. There are numerous suggested and used frameworks for sustainability assessment applying an “universal” approach for “faceless” farming enterprises, without taking into consideration the environment in which they evolve. A great majority among these assessment systems are practically unused by the farmers and managerial bodies due to difficulty to understand and employ.
