The aim of the article is to demonstrate the differences between labour productivity in the Romanian agriculture and the European Union countries, determining the impact on the farming system. The article is made with the help of the data from the Eurostat and the National Institute of Statistics. It use three different modalities to estimate agricultural labour productivity in European Union and in Romania. Labour productivity in agriculture, forestry and fishery sector is still very low in Romania compared to EU-28 member countries. Labour productivity in Romanian agriculture sector is lower than in other members’ countries of European Union, where it is very significant (Dutch, Danish, Belgian or French productivity is 10-15 times higher). Analysing labour productivity in Romania's agriculture sector by economic activities, it is noted that agriculture has the smallest labour productivity. In view of the existence of a large number of employed persons in Romania agriculture (10.45% of the total population), it is very important to increase labour productivity in Romania because it has a major impact on economic growth and the standard of living.
