Les petites exploitations roumaines connaissent elles une évolution sous contraintes de localisation?
This paper aims to clarify the recent evolution of Romanian small farms. As a result of complex historic process the category of subsistence and semi-subsistence farms is well represented within Romanian Farm structure (Mathijs and al., 2004; Giruca and al., 2006). The recent data collected by the General Census and Farm Structure surveys gave some signs of the recent evolution. We focus specifically on the smallest categories and try to differentiate their evolution among different factors. Farm survival and Farm growth literature is abundant and focuses especially on initial farm size, specialisation or pluriactivity of the farm (Weiss, 1999). In contrast, the role of localization, linked to historical background or physical constraints, as a factor is more limited in the literature. Other institutional factors such as inheritance and succession have not really been approached until now. We choose to investigate those factors using a multiple regression on the 3 recent data collections in Romania.
