Labour Productivity In Romania’S Agriculture. A Regional Analysis By Farm Types


  • Cecilia ALEXANDRI

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


The paper makes an analysis of labour productivity situation on the Romanian farms, across regions. The information sources used in the paper are the Farm Structure Surveys (FSS) in the years 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013 and the Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN) surveys conducted every year to collect data on the economic-financial results from farms, in each European Union member state. The results of the study indicate that in the investigated period, 2007–2012, there were economic growth trends on the Romanian farms, more obvious in certain regions (West region) or less obvious in other regions (North-East). In this context, there are important evolutions in relation to farm incomes, to subsidies and their effects, to farm capital increase and their effects upon the labor productivity. The results are compared to similar indicators at European level. This analysis regarding the economic results by regions brings new elements and leads to formulating certain conclusions in relation to the effects of the Common Agricultural Policy, as well as to the importance of certain local, socio-economic and structural factors upon labour productivity.
