Abstract

This paper presents the issue of productivity and profitability of agricultural holdings. It particularly focuses on selected sustainable farms’ groups that provide environmental benefits. The following groups of farms were analysed: ecological, agrienvironmental, Norfolk and sustainable. Farms specialised in cereal production were also the subject of analysis – the contrasting group to sustainable ones. The research was conducted using agricultural accountancy data – FADN 2012. The purpose of this paper is to present the economic efficiency of selected farms’ groups characterised by different influence on the natural environment.
