Abstract

The aim of this article is to analyse the characteristics of agriculture in the urban areas in comparison to the specific agrarian surroundings in the same region. h can be concluded that there are no, or not pronounced differences and that the inter-regional differences of agriculture are much more important than the intra-regional differentiation related to urban and non-urban areas. The intensity and the structure of agricultural production are quite the same. However, the average farm-size and the volume of production are smaller in the urban areas. This can be related to older managers and w a lack of successors. So agriculture, especially in the inner part of urban areas, is significantly less dynamic and will tend to disappear. This mutation will be a serious problem for the conservation of the open space.
