Agricultural holding


A single unit, both technically and economically, which has a single management and which conducts agricultural activity.

By reason of the introduction from 2010of gradual changes in the methodology of agricultural surveys, aimed primarily at adaptation to EU standards and taking into account the changes taking place in the Polish agruculture, as well as the wider use of administrative sources, a definition of agricultural holding has change. According to current definition, agricultural holdings do not includeholders of agricultural landnot conducting agricultural activity and the holders of agricultural land with an area of less than 1 ha conducting agricultural activity on a small scale.
