ABSTRACT
The article indicates the solutions which improve the competitiveness of Polish agriculture, through the increase of the share of farms with the potential for development. It was assumed that the growth should be achieved by a directed support of investment activities of farmers, provided in draft regulations of the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development for the 2014-2020 perspective. To increase the efficiency of support, the article presents the way of funds distribution for the purpose of the investment growth. The method presented limits the scope of the support. It will be limited to the farms which achieve good economic results and are interested in investing, yet lack funds to do so. Farms with too small scale of production and those which have adequate financing of investments should be excluded from the scheme. Support criteria for agricultural farms are also listed.
