Abstract

The government considers agriculture and rural development to be a priority. Based on the
importance of farming and rural development, through this study we have tried to indicate whether the
grant application and subsidies have contributed in improving the yield of benefiting farmers. Multiple
regression analysis was applied to confirm the main hypothesis. Also, the independent samples t-test
showed differences between subsidized and non-subsidized farmers. Based on our findings we have the
following results: direct subsidies have had a positive impact on the yield of benefiting farmers.
Furthermore, the results of this study further justify that commitment and financial assistance of the
Government of Kosovo and many European Community donors have enhanced the farm performance
and generally the development of the farming sector in Kosovo.
