A b s t r a c t . The study presents how farms are equipped with technical means of production. Moreover, it gives the number of equipment per one farm and the reproductive value. The technical infrastructure index of farms as well as the standard gross margin value per a fi eld area unit was also determined. The researched facilities were divided into three groups, which differed with a trend of performed activities, for the purpose of comparative analysis. Therefore, farms, which carried out plant, animal and mixed production, were compared. The statistical analysis was carried out and on its basis, differences in the value of the above mentioned indexes were determined between the production trends as well as the infl uence of the technical infrastructure on the standard gross margin.
Key words: reproductive value of a machinery park, technical infrastructure index, standard gross margin, production trend
