    The development of Hungarian agricultural business economics and management used to evolve in accordance with international leaders of the sector. On the other hand, a paradox situation has emerged in Hungary in the last two decades, in which such knowledge is only partially applied as a consequence of insufficient knowledge transfer and highly restructured agriculture. In the framework of an EU-6 research project, reviewing the agricultural risk management practices of some EU Member States, including Hungary, became possible. The study highlights those issues that are the most characteristic in terms of the level of information, management, marketing and finance. As a conclusion, it can be stated that the level of management of Hungarian agricultural holdings is lagging behind the practice in the European Union and the possibilities offered by science. The main reasons for that can be derived from the inadequate education system, leisureliness of farmers, inconsistency of agricultural policy, the inadequate preparation of the EU accession, and the imperfect institutional background of agriculture.
