Summary/Abstract: The paper discusses the problem of the formation of the income situation of agricultural holdings in the European Union. For the purpose of the analyses the data from the European Agricultural Accountancy Data Network (European Farm Accountancy Data Network, FADN – Agriculture – FADN) for the years 1995-2009 have been used. The results indicate that there exist differences between countries in obtaining income by farms. The study shows that the income of households and persons engaged in agriculture are characterized by significant volatility, which in recent years has increased. In order to stabilize income of persons associated with agriculture the remedial actions on the level of the agricultural policy are required.
