Title : Technical equipment and commodity production in ecological animal production farms
Key words : technical equipment, commodity production, ecology, animal production
Summary :

Improvement of the quality of the produced goods, which becomes more significant nowadays, as well as the increase of production is possible through modernisation of farms. It is especially significant in ecological farming which is one of the fastest developing branches of agriculture in the world. Therefore, the aim of the paper was to determine the level of technical equipment including a machinery park and farm buildings and the size of commodity production in farms. 83 ecological farms, where animal production was carried out were accepted for analyses – out of 100 farms included in the research project. Farms we-re located on the territory of the south Poland. The research was carried out in the form of a guided survey with farm owners. Data concerned 2011. In order to carry out comparable analyses, the facilities were divided into groups, assuming at least 60% of the population sha-re of the particular utility group of animals, expressed in LSU in the total number of live-stock, as a division criterion. The biggest number of technical means with reference to 1 ha of arable land was reported in poultry farms and the lowest number in farms specialising in horse breeding. Simultaneously, the highest commodity production amounting to 2.25 and 4.55 in t·ha-1 was reported in those two groups of farms. The statistical analysis, which was carried out, the aim of which was to find a relation between commodity production and technical equipment of farms in particular groups, proved to be insignificant.
