Tendencies in the income situation of farms participating in the accounting system of the FADN in Poland on a background of selected EU countries

Aleksander Grzelak


The main aim of the article is to identify tendencies in the formation of income in Poland after accession to the EU on a background of selected EU countries (Germany, the Czech Republic, and Lithuania). The author has used the following research methods: analysis of time series data of the FADN (farm accounting) system, the index of changes, mean, and correlation analysis. Adopted research methods have enabled the use of inductive way of reasoning with elements of reduction. The analysis of changes in the income situation of farms in the EU was conducted by using the results of agricultural accounting system FADN (Farm Accountancy Data Network). Time range of the research concerns the years 2004-2011. The author has used analysis in view of the 5 type of production of farms. There were clear growth tendencies in farm income in the period (2004-2011) in all analysed countries. The largest increase was in the Czech Republic and Lithuania. The author has stated that income of farms is increasingly affected by subsidies, which act as stabilisers in terms of economic downturn. In the case of farms in the Czech Republic and Germany, the level of balance subsidies and taxes in most of the analysed years was higher than gained income. This indicates that the scale of the production, advanced processes of concentration, and capital-intensity (in Germany), are unable to spontaneously solve the income problems of farms based only on the market mechanism.
