Romania is a country of contrasts especially as agriculture is concerned. On one side we have state of the art machinery and equipment being used on farms larger than 100 ha and on the other side we have small subsistence farms operated by an aging and poor population. The paper aims to highlight few causes that have stressed even more the difficult situation of the rural population of this country; especially those that have been brought about by the financial crisis initiated in 2008 and that have gotten even worse with the passing of time. We have performed a qualitative and quantitative analysis showing the decline in the number of cattle bred, either for milk or meat, by the subsistence farmers from Plataresti commune, Calarasi County, Romania, allowing us to identify few causes that could be counteracted by a proactive social measure. The results of our research indicate one possible measure meant to counteract negative effects that subsistence farmers are now facing.

This paper has proposed an analysis of the most powerful Romanian brands, according to a study conducted by Unlock Market Research in September 2010. In this sense, we undertook a statistical processing of the data presented in the study, to analyze the distribution of the main areas of the most powerful Romanian brands. Our results showed that the most successful brands belong to different Romanian food branches, in that they represent secondary and tertiary processing products of raw materials, derived from agriculture or zootechnics. The number of industrial products brands is relatively small (9, representing 18% of total), the associated trade mark services sector is dominated by banks, representing 10% of the total marks. 16% of successful brands belong to Romanian mass-media. Also, best valued branch in the top is the alcoholic beverages one. The most brands in top 50, concerning alcoholic beverages, were valued in the top half of the ranking.

Carl Jung considered that color "is the native language of the subconscious." Overlooking the importance of subconscious in creating consumers’ behavior, the understanding of the "language" in which color speaks to us can not be neglected in carrying out marketing activities. Speaking the language of the subconscious can be one of the most powerful marketing tools ever created by the human being. We intend in this study to identify the most important elements which characterize the use of color in marketing.

Financial institutions present on the market become more attentive when they have to give loans to the agriculture sector. The lack of necessary guarantees the low profit registered in agricultural district, economy instability and other things had and continue to have a negative impact on the evolution of agricultural sector, this being seen as one with a high level of risk. Commercial banks use less own funds for lending to agriculture and especially when the loans are guaranteed from various funds, programs or foreign donor agencies. Farmers find it difficult to bank loans because of collateral amount required is too high. However, commercial banks in Moldova provide agricultural loans, thus increasing the economic efficiency of agriculture.
