The integration to the EU led to serious changes in Bulgarian agriculture. The implementation of Common agricultural policy caused significant transformations in farm structures. There are substantial variations in the number and the size of the agricultural holdings. The aim of the study is to highlight the main trends in the level and dynamics of concentration in Bulgarian agricultural sector. The Lorenz curve, as the most widely used measure of inequality, is applied in the paper to analyse the process of concentration and the distribution of agricultural holdings. The results indicate that the large structures continue to grow, while small farms are disappearing. The survey shows insubstantial role of medium-sized holdings, polarization and dualistic structure of Bulgarian agriculture.
