ABSTRACT
The aim of this study is to analyze the structures of land use in ecological farming in the EU countries, for which EUROSTAT made the statistics available. The survey concerns the period between 2004 and 2012. The method of data clustering has been used there in order to classify the structure of land use. The taxonomic analysis allowed for differentiating 5 subgroups from the data base. They have cross-sectional and time-series character as well as similar cropping patterns. The agricultural sector reacted to the increasing demand for organic products in two ways: by the extension of the crops’ acreage or by the change in the structures of land use (in order to match the product offer with the demand). However, the conducted surveys did not indicate the essential changes in the structures of land use. In consequence, a significant level of stabilization of supply’s structure was created.
