The Slovak Republic is divided into 8 regions according to NUTS 3. From the total area of Slovakia, the agricultural land occupies 49.16% of the territory, which is 2401293 ha. The most productive land suitable for growing selected agricultural commodities is located in the regions of Western Slovakia. In terms of agricultural land it is undoubtedly extremely important to understanding the potential of economic profitability of the production units by growing different crops. The basic methods for the analysis of the market in selected agricultural commodities were mainly the situation and outlook reports from National Agricultural and Food Centre Branch: Research Institute of Agriculture and Food Economics and materials from Soil Science and Conservation Research Institute, Slovak republic. The paper evaluates the use of land with regard to crop production, particularly of selected commodities - grains and oilseeds during the period 2001 to 2016 and a market analysis of these commodities in Slovakia. The crop production is essential for the sustainable development of the country and its regions while meeting the needs of the population and stabilizing of the living conditions. The volume of the total grains and oilseeds supply in Slovakia sufficiently covers domestic consumption and part of the production can also be exported outside Slovakia because it does not foresee significant changes in the development of the different directions of grain utilization in domestic agri-food market. On the basis of the analysis, it is possible to note the lagging of agricultural production in Slovakia by half to the average of the EU countries.
