This paper presents environmental, social and eco-nomical conditions for agriculture development. Interaction of these factors made a big spatial variety in Silesian Voivodship. Carried classification allowed to select 5 groups of communities on account of conditions for agriculture development (fig. 1). Favourable conditions are on 43% area of agrarian uses. Unprofitable group of conditions contains 20,3% and very unprofi-table 17,0% of agrarian uses area. These are the problematic agriculture areas about the unprofitable environmental condi-tions, with the predomination of small farms of agrarian structure on which the production was seriously limited.
