Andrzej Czyżewski , Dariusz Czakowski


This paper attempts to determine the similarity between individual markets for agricultural products, considering the evolution of basic balance sheet data (production, domestic consumption, imports and exports) and real purchase prices of agricultural products. The main markets for agricultural products include those demonstrating the highest production volumes of commodity such as cereals, potatoes,sugar beets (sugar), rape, fruit, vegetables, pork, beef and poultry, cow’s milk and eggs in the study period. Based on the search for data sources, and considering the specifics of empirical data collected, it was decided that the following methods will be used to pursue the objectives of this study: principal component analysis, cluster analysis based on the Ward’s method and k-means. The research allowed to identify three groups of Polish markets which followed a similar development trend after Poland’s accession to the European Union. The first group consisted of markets for cereals, rape, poultry and fruits. The second cluster included markets for cow’s milk, eggs and beef. The last one was composed of potato, sugar beet, vegetable and pork markets.
