The comparative advantage of Slovak agriculture in the field of human resources

Zemedelska Ekonomika 42(5): 205-215

The comparative advantage of Slovak agriculture in the field of human resources

Labour conditions in Slovakian agriculture are compared with those in EU countries. In the EU the total numbers working in agriculture are steadily falling as are the proportion of women and family workers, at the same time the average age of farmers, the regional concentration of farming and farmers' pluriactivities are increasing. The greatest comparative advantage of Slovak agriculture is the low cost of labour. This is a temporary advantage with certain negative elements.
