Observed trends in the changes in relations between the production factors and the level of price of agricultural products cause in the long term the necessity to adopt new production technologies. In the situation of fast growth of the labour cost in relation to other production costs there is necessity to adopt labor-saving technology in order to improve the capital ? labour relation. It results in substitution of more expensive labour by less expensive capital. The aim of this study is to analyze the changes in relation of production factors in agriculture on the example of Poland. It has been stated that in agriculture in Poland, the loss of land used for agriculture and decapitalization of fixed assets in the absence of outflow of the agricultural population to non-agricultural departments are observed. The result is a deterioration in the relationship between labor resources and the resources of land and capital.
