The main aim of this paper is to present the position of Polish agriculture in comparison with the EU as well as the changes that occurred between the agricultural censuses of 2002 and 2010. The study shows that between the agricultural censuses the position of Polish agriculture did not fall, while it improved in many areas. Polish agriculture can be ranked on the 4th-5th position among the EU countries, which in relation to all 27 states of the Community constitutes a relatively high position. Agrarian structure has improved in Poland; although, not as much as it did in the EU. Farm holding fragmentation was accompanied by agrarian overpopulation, while the holding of small farms served farmers as an element of social security. The productivity of Polish agriculture was low, which was shown through the crop and yield volumes of major agricultural products.
