Abstract

Agriculture is the sector with strong specificity of production processes. This results from the use of the forces of nature (earth, solar, biological processes) and live organisms. Similarly as in the whole economy, the modernization of agrarian sector influences on growing importance of logistics. Modern agricultural enterprises must transport and store not only huge amounts of inputs (e.g. feed, fertilizers, pesticides, energy, seeds, etc.) but also the final plant and animal products (grain, tubers, forage, live animals, meat, milk, wool, etc.). Apart from that, the relationship between companies and their environment is becoming more and more significant. There is a strong attention to well prepared and created communication channels providing reliable flows of information, goods, money and people. This paper presents the scale of the production and transport of major crops in Poland against the background of non-agrarian products (coal, liquid fuels). Moreover, author presents the classification of the products that are part of internal and external trade and storage process in a classic agricultural enterprise. Some trends in technical solutions and technology used to streamline manufacturing processes with their use in agriculture on the example of milk production cereals were also laid out.
