Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyze on a comparative basis the conventional and organic production systems for 12 crops, synthesizing a series of indicators that reflect the economic effort, mainly the economic effect and the economic efficiency. The research is oriented towards the theoretical and practical argumentation of the need for the involvement of agricultural policy measures in Romania, highlighting the causes of state intervention in order to maintain in cultivation the areas for some of the investigated crops (soybeans, tobacco, hops, sugar beet, rice, etc.). In this respect, it demonstrates that in the absence of subsidies, farmers could give up cultivating the above- mentioned crops and should invest to develop other more profitable crops. The importance of these aspects is related to the fact that the forms and tools for developing the agricultural sector are multiple, the subsidies to farmers becoming one of the most important ones in the recent period.
