Public administration of agricultural advisory system

Keywords: agriculture, infrastructure, advisory services, competitiveness, costs, profitability, rural development


In the article we investigate the current state of agricultural production and the infrastructure and information support of agricultural producers. We argue that the environment of agriculture is changing at an unprecedented rate and in many different ways, globally and locally. It is established that at present only a small number of agrarian producers with favorable conditions for production are the main beneficiaries of all modern developments and innovations, while small producers are largely unable to take advantage of the available opportunities. Insufficient access to information, understanding and information networks is one form of limiting capacity. Agrarian consultancy (advisory) services have been found to be an important element of an array of market and non-market organizations and agents that provide a critical flow of information that can improve the well-being of farmers and villagers. It is justified that after a period of neglect, agricultural consultancy services have returned to the international development agenda. In addition to their usual function of providing knowledge to improve agricultural productivity, they are now an important component of the agricultural market infrastructure. It is proved that market-oriented agricultural advisory services are one of the necessary services for efficient production of products. The main vectors of activity of advisory service in Ukraine are distinguished: technical, personnel, legal, economic, legal, organizational. In the article we investigate the specifics of state management of the agricultural advisory system, outline the further development prospects.
