We bring to our readers attention information about new technologies, commercial, juridical and fiscal issues etc. We are publishing, for example, the quotations of the main agricultural products on the major Commodities Exchanges of the world; We are also publishing a summary of all legal documents related to agriculture, etc..

The magazine had this year the 18th anniversary, being published continuously, in excellent graphic conditions, A4 format, with minimum 52 full color pages. Weekly we are distributing 5 000 copies and we have national coverage. Most of the copies are sold through subscriptions paid directly to the editorial office. Profitul Agricol is also delivered trough specialized press distribution companies, both in Bucharest and abroad.

The subscribers of our magazine are primarily farmers and the agricultural institutions of the government: all local centers of APIA (Payment and Intervention Agency for Agriculture), ADS (Romanian State Domain Agency ), ANARZ (National Agency for Animal Breeding Amelioration and Reproduction ), APDRP (Payment Agency for Rural Development and Fishing), DADR (Department for Agriculture and Rural Development), OJCA (County Agricultural Consultancy Offices), ANIF (National Administration of Land Improvement), ROMSILVA (National Forest Administration ) etc.

According to our records, most of the subscribers are commercial companies and agricultural associations. Many large companies have more than 10 subscriptions, for more of their employees that read our magazine (Insula Mare a Brailei, Agrofam Fetesti, Agricola Bacau, Agrocom Frumusani, Interagro etc.). We have partnerships with major producer's organizations such as Cooperativa Agricola Muntenia, Transylvanian Federation of Cattle Breeders , Romania Farmers' Association etc..

Most of our subscribers are from the southern counties (Constanta, Braila, Ialomita, Calarasi, Olt, Teleorman) and western districts of the country (Arad, Timisoara, Bihor). Since June 2006, we gained almost 1,000 subscribers in the counties of Moldavia (Galati, Bacau, Neamt, Botosani, Iasi).
The magazine is successfully sold to the food industry (such as bread, milk, oil and meat factories) and city halls, etc..

If we are considering that Romania has about 10 - 15 thousand agricultural companies, we have a coverage of over 40 % of the real market potential.

Opinii agro-politice
Fermierii pot sa-si pregateasca singuri o baza de angajati calificati, prin stagii de practica. Este o solutie care ar putea aduce anual īntre 5.000 si 10.000 de tineri īn campul muncii, spune Florin Constantin, fondator al firmei Agxecutive, care de-a lungul experientei sale īn firme de agribusiness a integrat destui studenti. Criza de forta de munca se resimte īn mai toate domeniile. Fermele nu sunt deloc o exceptie. Ba din contra, forta de munca este acum o preocupare mai presanta chiar decat pretul inputurilor sau al cerealelor, constata Florin Constantin. "Sunt fermieri care si-au chemat copiii care lucrau īn IT pentru ca nu avea cine sa conduca tractoarele si sa lucreze alaturi de ei. Iar unele firme de agribusiness se uita spre lucratori din Sri Lanka sau Vietnam pentru munci necalificate". Ne confruntam cu o lipsa a fortei de munca pentru ca ea a emigrat masiv īn ultimii ani. Cumva mirajul muncii īn Spania sau Italia s-a exercitat, iar noi nu am stiut sa īl contrabalansam cumva. Si la nivelul angajatilor cu studii superioare stam rau. 70-80% din absolventii de USAMV-uri nu raman īn agricultura. Se mai gandeste cineva ca o generatia de specialisti se pregateste sa iasa la pensie si mai bine de jumatate dintre fermeri se vor retrage īn cel mult 10 ani? Īn acest context, o solutie poate veni de la ferme si de la firmele de inputuri, propune Florin Constantin. Fiecare poate sa pregateasca liceeni si studenti, īn programe de stagiatura īn timpul vacantelor.
