Regional diversification in the Polish agriculture is a result of climatic and social conditions, as well as historical developments. The aim of this paper is the assessment of the role that the CAP plays in the transformation of Polish agriculture is based on a comparative analysis of data on agriculture and the use of support by individual regions since the Polish EU accession until 2013. The results indicate the widening gaps in the development of agriculture in Polish regions. Regions with small farms receive less support for improving agricultural competitiveness. It is necessary to take account of these differences and design policy measures better targeted at individual needs of each of the regions. It seems that CAP does not shrink regional diversity of the Polish agriculture. However, it appears that it is not a key factor leading to an increase in this diversity, but an additional factor alongside with current conditions for conducting different types of agricultural activity.
