THE NON-AGRICULTURAL ACTIVITY AS THE SOURCE OF ADDITIONAL INCOMES IN AGRICULTURAL FARMS IN THE LOWER SILESIA AREA
Taking into account dropping level of incomes coming especially from the work in agriculture the investigation allowed to estimate the structure of incomes in studied farms. The objects of investigations were chosen taking into account the position of the farm on country areas and the leadership of the additional non-agricultural activity. The results of investigations proved that the low incomes from the agricultural activity and generally difficult economic situation of farms had forced majority of farmers to take up non-agricultural activity to obtain additional incomes resulting from the basic agricultural activity. The connection of the agricultural and non-agricultural activity can be a chance for utilization of the surpluses of working force without the necessity of undertaking the work beyond the farm.
