The paper points out the regional disparities of the individual farmers in Slovakia and explains the notion of individual farmer according to the Slovak legal regulation. The interests doing business in agriculture as individual farmers is renewed. However, the related legal regulation which is very strict and vaguest needs to be amending mainly on the fact that some rules were created for the purposes of the Czechoslovakia. In spite of the fact that the number of individual farmers has been increased, there are proved some regional disparities in Slovakia. The most individual farmers are concentrated in the Bratislava, the Nitra, the Trnava and the Košice regions. In the Prešov and the Trenčín regions, there are minimum individual farmers. There is a positive spatial autocorrelation and the individual farmers are more concentrated on the fertile lowlands. Therefore the rural development policy should take into account the regional disparities among the regions and counties and support the role of individual farmers according to the priorities of a particular region.
