The paper presents analysis of investment layouts in UE-27 farms having the three biggest economic sizes (16-<40 ESU, 40-<100 ESU, >100 ESU) for years of 2004 - 2007. The analysis of the farms of economic size 16 and larger ESU shows that the bigger economic size a farm has, the larger net and gross investment layouts are. The highest ratio of reproduction of fixed assets was noted mainly in the case of farms in new EU member states. In EU-15 countries the earned margin for self-financing of development is not allocated to investments and development, whereas in EU-12 countries the earned margin for development played significant role in investment activities of farmers.
