Large share of farms producing mainly for own consumption makes Romania's agricultural potential being not fully exploited, resulting in chronic deficit of trade with agri-food products, which means a threat for food security from a supply perspective. On the other hand, at the level of household, the value of consumption from own resources in farmer households is approximately equal to their monetary income, highlighting the positive contribution to food security. Thus, it seems that the social role of semi-subsistence farms is still important in Romania, and the transformation of this sector need a complex intervention.
