The paper aims to analyze the implementation of CAP 2014-2020 on development of agriculture in SR. Based on the findings we can evaluate that the CAP 2014-2020 measures implemented changes mainly in I. pillar. The most significant changes include reassessment of direct payments, greening, a new tool in I. Pillar, which is intended to pay for environmental services. Greening can be understood as a suitable tool for Slovak farmers to increase the possibilities for additional payments. As other positive measure for Slovak farmers is the payment for young farmers, which is being applied in SR for the first time. For young farmers in Slovakia (0,02% share on total EU young farmers) is supposed to be such a measure crucial for reaching competitiveness for their farms and even to increase the number of young farmers. As a negative impact of CAP reform for Slovak agriculture is the expiration of milk quota, which may negatively impact the livestock production. The II. Pillar remains unchanged and allows SR to focus on its specific priorities in rural development with new measure to realize flood control measures. According the evaluation of main economic indicators of Slovak agricultural farms we can state still negative economic development. Implementation of CAP and realization of EU financial support for agriculture in Slovakia represents main financial support and the support of Slovak government and national funding needs to be revised and increased.
