Role of state administration in updating land-estate and farm-size conditions

The structure of land estates and farm-sizes are the basis of a competitive agricultural production, hence these questions belong to the evergreen themes both of theory and practice also on international level. In Central and Eastern European Countries (CEECs), the change of political and economic regime virtually tore into the agriculture in beginning of 1990s, destroying the existing structure of land estates by the privatization, restitutions or restoration of ownership rights resulting in fragmentation of land ownership. Over the past 10-15 years this situation has not undergone any fundamental changes. Due to economic and political situation in the transition countries market forces can not function as primary engine for land consolidation. For that very reason the land-estate policy is of outmost importance nowadays in these countries. The main goal of this paper is to show the process of agricultural reforms driven mainly by land estate policy in connection with their outcomes in CEECs.
