Abstract

This paper presents a holistic framework for analysing, assessment and improvement of environmental management in agriculture, and assesses the forms, factors and efficiency of agro-eco-management in Bulgaria during post-communist transition and EU integration. It incorporates an interdisciplinary approach, and suggests a modern framework for analysing and evaluating the system of environmental management in agriculture. After that is analysed evolution of diverse formal and informal management forms for environmental management in Bulgarian agriculture, and identifies and assesses the forms, factors, efficiency and perspectives of environmental management in “eco-active” farms of different type and location.
