Abstract Agricultural diversification is an important mechanism for economic growth. With the globalization of markets, diversification of agriculture has as result the increasing crop productivity in terms of quality, quantity and monetary value. The purpose of this paper is to give an overview of Romanian agriculture in terms of diversifying production. Based on the National Statistics Institute, it analyzes the dynamics of vegetable and animal sector in terms of cultivated areas, livestock, the total and average production obtained. Romanian agriculture is at a disadvantage due to excessive fragmentation of ownership, low use of agricultural land through cultivation or weak endowment with agricultural machinery and lack of organization. We conclude that agriculture as a whole, had not a positive development. Fluctuations in the main indicators of production are the consequences of the long transition period and of the incoherent policies on agriculture in general and to each sector, in particular.
