Physical Size of Agricultural Holdings in Romania. Gaps between Romania and the European Union Member States
AbstractThe physical size of agricultural holdings refers to the average utilized agricultural area (UAA) of agricultural holdings. It reveals the average level of UAA concentration and represents an important component of agricultural production development. In the present paper we have in view the following: physical size of agricultural holdings in Romania compared to the EU average; distribution of agricultural holdings by different size classes; the manifested trends and the general character of these trends; the existing gap between Romania’s agriculture and the EU average and the average in the EU Member States; the gap trend and the factors that favour or hinder the UAA concentration in our country; the agricultural policy in the investigated field. The paper was mainly based upon the data from Eurostat, the EU Economic Commission, the National Institute for Statistics from Romania and from different published studies and papers.
