As a material production branch, agriculture features certain particularities that are essentially different from those of the other sectors of national economy, namely: active role in land operation, which increases the capacity of obtaining high yields by rational land use and use of technical advances; blending the technological process with that of natural (biological) multiplication of living organisms; strong action of weather factors upon the harvest; seasonality and diminution of working time due to the biological processes and non-coincidence with the production time. On the basis of statistical techniques, the present paper intends to reveal the evolution of the gross value added in the sector of agriculture, hunting and forestry; fishery and pisciculture, extrapolating the investigated characteristic.
