At the same time, the paper investigates the crop structure, the irrigated area and the number of irrigation equipment, the number of agricultural machinery and equipment, the market orientation of farms, the type and development level of the non-agricultural activities in the respective county and the specialization of farms in the South-East region of Romania.
