SPATIAL DEVELOPMENTS OF HUNGARIAN AGRICULTURE IN THE TRANSITION: THE CASE OF CROP PRODUCTION

The paper investigates spatial changes in cultivation and land use of wheat, maize and oilseed in Hungarian agriculture using different methods to measure these changes. The results suggest that spatial structure of crop productions has remained fairly stable during analysed period. The spatial concentration increased significantly for wheat and maize production and maize land use, whilst the changes were not significant for other cases. Estimates confirm the presence of spatial autocorrelation for all cases. The degree of spatial autocorrelation has no unambiguous pattern over time, except for maize production. Finally, we have not found significant relationship measured by PSE index between agricultural support and spatial concentration, but estimates show positive and significant effects of the share of private farms in the production of certain crops on spatial concentration.
