Variability Of Fruit Production Across Regions


  • Viorica GAVRILA

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


An unstable fruit production leads to weak investment strategies of fruit farmers, impacting consumers on the medium and long term. The identification of factors affecting fruit production stability is very important as, at present, the fruit sector is facing competitiveness problems and the production is still far from meeting the population’s consumption needs. The study targets the following issues: 1) the performance of the sector and different regions as regards the investigated fruit tree species production and yields and 2) the production instability degree and the factors responsible for this phenomenon. In the analysis we used statistical data series, simple and synthetic variation indicators, calculated as absolute or relative measures.
