Abstract


The aim of the article – To evaluate the influence of government’s support on the social responsibility of farmers’ farms.

Methods used in the research. analysis of scientific literature (in order to define the problem of compatibility between the government’s support and social responsibility), method of descriptive statistics analysis (in order to evaluate the extent of support and to the social costs of farmers).

One of the support means designated for the direct inducement of social responsibility is the government’s support to organic farms. Still it was determined that such support means as the support for the investments or direct allowances do not induce higher social responsibility consciousness between the farmers. After summarization of total results of government’s support it was determined, that government’s support for the farmers had no influence on their social responsibility increase. Due to this reason it is necessary to revise the priorities of rendering of government’s support means for the farmers and to relate them to the inducement of farmers’ social responsibility.
