Resultsshow that farmers are rather pessimistic about the employment effects of CAP reformyexpecting a decrease in the number of farm jobs regardless of the type. Econometricanalyses suggest that farm size in terms of area is positively related to the expectednumber of male employment on the farms, whilst the less favoured land has negativeeffects on the male employment except seasonal workers. Farms employing more labourexpect thet number of full time female workers to slightly increase, whilst the number of part-time and seasonal employees is expected to decrease. Less favoured areas have negative impact on the job expectancy for seasonal workers. In general, farmers’ expectations contradict to the intention of CAP reform.
