Title : Logistics of supply of agricultural farms in the selected production means
Key words : farming, production means, supply, logistics
Summary :

The paper presents results of the research concerning supply of agricultural farms in the selected production means. It was found out that all respondents purchase mineral fertilizer, while half of them buy NPK nitrogen, potassium and calcium fertilizers and 10% - only two types of fertilizers. Almost all farmers buy weed killers, antifungal and insecticidal substances and 40% buy antirodent substances, but in majority of cases this group does not include farmers, who run farms with the area exceeding 50 ha and producing plants. Mineral fertilizers (except for calcium) are bought by farmers every 6 months or once a year, while 60% out of the second group farms on over 50 ha and the same number carries out mixed farming. Crop protection chemicals are bought in majority twice or once a year. Period of storing fertilizers is varied but farmers storing for half a year constitute the most numerous group. The presented results suggest that logistic activities of companies, which distribute production means used in farming, should be based on the analysis of the farms size and their type in a given region, because impact of these factors on the structure of purchase of production means was determined.
