The objective of our paper was to present factors of the efficiency of farms cultivating rapeseed. The analysis included production and economic results for rapeseed cultivation. We used tabular, graphic, and descriptive methods to measure the research results. In addition, the authors used a regression model to measure the impact of selected factors on production and economic results of farms. The authors used correlation analysis and the classic method of least squares to measure homoscedasticity. Our research found that the value of production and income has increased in all farms. We observed from the survey that the production and income calculated per one ha. farmland increased. The income calculated per one employed person has increased as the result of hired labor on the farms.
