Abstract: Under the Slovak climatic conditions the oil crops represent the second most important group of crops grown on the arable land. Out of the total area of oil crops the rape comprises the largest territory. The reason is its universal utilization, not only in the food industry but also in the production of biofuels. Rape ranks among the most significant export agricultural commodities. The objective of the paper is the comparison of the production-economic dependences in rape growing in the Slovak Republic. This paper is based on the available materials of the Research Institute of Agricultural and Food Economics in Bratislava in the period of 2009 - 2015. We analyze the rape production from the aspects of cost incurred, yields, prices and subsidies. Consequently, we evaluate the economic relationships such as revenues, cost effectiveness, rate of subsidies in the refundment of costs and break-even points.

Keywords: biofuels, break-even points, effectiveness, food industry, rape
