Spatial Dimension Of Pig And Poultry Subsectors Development In Romania


  • Lucian LUCA

    () (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


The paper investigates the evolution of territorial concentration in pig an poultry production in Romania after EU accession, based on data regarding live weight of slaughter pigs and slaughter poultry in the year 2007 and 2013, by counties and types of holdings, using Struk coefficient of territorial distribution, and the coefficient of relative structural modifications. Main finding is that, continuing certain local traditions, and similarly to the evolution in other EU member states, a tendency of territorial concentration of the pork and poultry meat production can be noticed in Romania, in the case of pork in the western part of the country, and in the case of poultry meat around Bărăgan Plain in the southern part, an area in the proximity of Bucharest.
