The basic characteristic of Slovene agriculture is the fact that for a longtime it has been developing in a totally different direction from the EU agriculture.This is especially true in the case of agrarian structure and itsdevelopment. While in the countries with developed agriculture, togetherwith the improvement of agricultural technology the process of enlargement of farms and concentration and specialisation of production weregoing on relatively fast, the private sector of Slovene agriculture until the1990s was characterised by permanent decrease and fragmentation of theland property, by low working intensity of production and, in some areas,by gradual abandoning of production. It can be maintained that in Sloveneagriculture the discrepancy between social-economic structure of ruralpopulation and agrarian structure has become deeper. Evident processesresulted in a fact that Slovenia has a demographic structure of developedsociety (from the viewpoint of share of rural population), but, with regardto agrarian structure, it has the characteristics of a classical agrarian society.
