Supply chain restructuring and its impact on farmers' income - the evidence from dairy sector in Poland
AbstractSupply chain restructuring and its impact on farmers’ situation have become the subject of vast interest among agricultural economists. However, there have been relatively few studies trying to quantitatively asses this issue. This paper analyses the impact of supply chain modernisation on dairy farmers in Poland. It is shown that joining the modern marketing channel positively affects farmers’ incomes. The decision to enter the modern channel is crucially dependent on access to funds and facilitated by having larger cow herds.
