Territorial Gaps In Resource Utilization Efficiency In Animal Production


  • Sorin BUCUR

    (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


As an important factor in the formation of gross value added in agriculture, animal production experienced a noticeable deterioration trend in the last 22 years, both in the level of inputs and in input use efficiency. Expressed in 2010 prices, the animal production value nationwide decreased by nearly 64% in 2010 compared to 1990, with oscillations ranging from – 68.3% (Macro-region III) to – 60.7% (Macro-region I). The same diminution trend was also noticed at regional level, being the effect of the low efficiency of inputs use both at national and at regional (local) level. Starting from these considerations, the present approach brings into discussion the modality of production factors utilization and the territorial disparities at the level of animal production in the period 1990–2011.
