THE EFFECTS OF THE ACCESSION TO THE EUROPEAN UNION ON THE EVOLUTION OF ROMANIA’S CEREAL SECTOR 

Abstract: The paper intends to examine the effects of the accession to the European Union on Romania`s cereal sector, in the period 2007-2016,  in terms of evolution of areas cultivated with wheat and maize,  production in volume and value terms, consumption and self-sufficiency, exports and imports, as well as the evolution of prices. The results reveal that unlike other sectors, the accession has steadily contributed to Romania`s cereal sector revigoration. Although yields in Romania are still substantially below those of the major European cereal producing countries, a steady growth trend can be noticed after 2007, due to the European funds that have allowed easier access to technological resources on the community market, and to a tendency for land consolidation, these advanced technologies being used more efficiently. The self-sufficiency degree has been reached and the trend is increasing, as it can be seen from the trade balance for cereals.
