Abstract. Most of the Central and East European countries are still peculiar with relatively low efficiency and productivity of agriculture. This paper analyzes farming efficiency in the selected European Union Member States during 2009. The aim of this study was to apply the benchmarking method and thus reveal the competitive advantages of the Lithuanian agricultural sector by comparing efficiency of different farming types. The data envelopment analysis was employed for the analysis. The results of analysis showed that for Lithuania, the most prospective farming types in terms of international competitiveness are those related to animal farming, namely dairying (milk) and mixed farming.


Key words: efficiency, productivity, farming types, European Union, data envelopment analysis.
