Session

Food Science and Technology

Description

The agriculture sector faces a lack of studies across the fields starting from the types of the farm, size, structural, organizational forms and economic efficiency, etc. This phenomenon has brought and brings many problems in the development of agriculture throughout the food chain, such as production, food processing, planning and drafting of agricultural policies for the development of this sector.

The purpose of this study was to analyze and identify typology of farms, to construct a typology of farms especially for commercial farms that have economic efficiency and higher competitiveness. For our case, the most appropriate method for identifying typology was considered Cluster method.

The selection of farms surveyed relied on the Farm Accounting Network (FADN) method as an instrument for estimating income on farms. The research was conducted as sample for analysis only those farms that have an economic value. As a result of the research we have identified six types of farms that have higher effectiveness and positively affect the entire food chain.
