In this research we are identifying the processes that are key factors for change in the agricultural environment. The PESTLE analysis is used to sort the state of every of the panels and find which one has the most impact. In our case we are identifying macroeconomic factors that have influence on the future development of the sector of agriculture in Bulgaria. In Bulgaria this kind of research has not been done using the PESTLE and will help future researchers to identify strengths and weaknesses in Bulgarian political, economic, sociocultural and technological environments. The legal framework and environmental factors are particularly important for agriculture and have been added in this order because the legal framework carries a higher importance.
