This paper tries to emphasize the changes in concentration of Romanian agricultural holdings and their utilized agricultural area, during 2002-2016 periods. Our research was based on census data at county level (40 counties) and utilized concentration indicators, like Herfindahl – Hirschman Index, Gini-Struck Coefficient, Gini Coefficient and Concentration Index. The results showed, in general, a low concentration, respectively an equitable distribution between counties of land and farms. However, we observed in the 2002-2016 periods a slightly increase in inequality (a higher concentration) when we analysed the number of individual agricultural holdings, the UAA of non-individual agricultural farms, the UAA of farms with under 10 ha and over 100 ha and the leased land. Also, the process of concentration had a higher growth in counties with hill and mountain landscape.
