Farming On The Edge In Poland. Options For Improving Farm Incomes For The Main Types Of Farms After Joining The EU
The aim of the paper is to examine the financial impacts of introducing the Common Agricultural Policy into the Polish
farming sector after the accession to the EU. Aggregated results from farm level modelling using linear programming for
210 farm types representing the variety of Polish farms, and 90% of the agricultural sector are presented. The benefits of
the negotiated subsidy arrangements are unequally distributed and only a partial solution to low farm family incomes.
