This paper is intended to investigate the current state of the research conducted hitherto at the EU level and highlight trends in how academic literature has received CAP attempts in addressing the modernization of agricultural holdings. The scientific database Web of Science (WoS) was interrogated using a list of research terms and offering insights into research topics and trend evaluation from different perspectives. The provided data was processed through the CiteSpace software, by generating a series of interactive graphics. Subsequently, the conclusions obtained are used to identify possible future research as well as to conclude a further course of the modernization measures in the EU farms in the next reform of the Common Agricultural Policy.
