    Die Entwicklung des ostdeutschen Agrarsektors seit der Wiedervereinigung steht im Mittelpunkt dieses Discussion Papers. Dabei werden in deskriptiver Form die Problembereiche des Transformationsprozesses aufgezeigt sowie Veränderungen hinsichtlich der Agrarproduktion und -struktur dargestellt. Es zeigt sich, dass die Landwirtschaft in den Neuen Bundesländern nach mehr als 15 Jahren noch immer deutliche Unterschiede zum Westen Deutschlands aufweist. Diese Differenzen liegen insbesondere in der Vielfalt der Rechtsformen, dem deutlich höheren Pachtflächenanteil, dem geringeren Viehbesatz sowie der größeren Flächenausstattung der Betriebe in Ostdeutschland. Der zu beobachtende Strukturwandel des deutschen Agrarsektors zeigt jedoch, dass infolge der agrarpolitischen Maßnahmen der Europäischen Union das westdeutsche Leitbild einer bäuerlichen Agrarstruktur zunehmend dem Vorbild der großbetrieblichen Landwirtschaft des Ostens weichen muss.
