Abstract: Agriculture of Belarus is dominated by state large-scale farms (an average circa 5,500 ha per farm), which account for about 75% of production, the share of small (about 100 hectares per farm) private farms is about 1% of production. Small (about 1 hectare) private unincorporated household farms produce about 24% of agricultural output. State for many years has been relying on development of large agricultural organizations. At the same time, small private enterprises continue to develop and demonstrate a more effective work compared to public corporations. The article analyzes effectiveness of various organizational and legal forms of organization of agricultural production, the main factors, which are hampering development of small and medium agribusinesses.
