The structure of the thesis includes introduction, three chapters, conclusions and recommendations, list of references from 138 sources, 9 appendixes, 145 pages of the main text, 50 figures, 26 tables. Scientific results were published in 11 scientific papers.

The field of the research is the analysis of theories and methods used to evaluate the development level of the peasant farms.

The methodology of research includes the following researches methods: analysis, synthesis, the applying of economic and statistical indicators, the implementation of rating evaluation method and the parametric method of the stochastic frontier.

The main goal of this research is to identify optimization patterns of peasant farms in the Republic of Moldova and to elaborate the recommendations for improving economic efficiency.

The scientific novelty and originality of the work consists in justifying the method of assessing the development level of peasant farms based on econometric models by applying the Cobb-Douglas production function. The important scientific problem, which has been solved is to assign a efficiency indicator of rating to each peasant farms and present the criteria for optimizing the production structure in the context of European integration. The typology of family farms developed on the basis of stochastic methods contributes to the improvement of financial assistance by the state.

The theoretical significance of the research consists in establishing the results and determining regularities in the peasant farms development.

The practical importance of the thesis is to determine the optimal parameters of peasant farms.

Implementation of scientific results. The scientific results were implemented within the framework of the scientific institutional project 15.817.05.31A "Sustainable development of rural areas in the Republic of Moldova in the context of Eurointegration".
