Anna Szeląg-Sikora , Zofia Gródek-Szostak , Danuta Kajrunajtys


The paper analyzes the conditions for the functioning of agricultural producer groups, which are a modern example of commercial activity in the agricultural sector. Based on the available static data, the growth dynamics of the number of business entities in question was determined, i.e. approx. 120 newly formed groups on average annually. Production of pigs, grains or oilseeds, and poultry was the dominant production in the grouped agricultural enterprises. The analysis allows to conclude that the form of cooperation of agricultural producers presented in the work undoubtedly favors the improvement of the market competitiveness of agricultural producers, and this is the main objective of any commercial organization. Thus, contemporary formalized forms of cooperation between agricultural producers bear many common features attributed to enterprises from other sectors of the national economy.
