Occurrence of plot patchwork is one of significant factors having a negative influence on the organization and level of agricultural production. Those plots are located within the area of a village where their owners live but they can be also found beyond it. Grounds located in the external plot patchwork are in the pos-session of villagers as well as of commune and town dwellers. Inhabitants of ad-ministrative, service, industrial or cultural and educational centres are mainly legal heirs of parents who lived in the country or emigrated to cities. However, it is necessary to mention non-resident owners who have bought building lots in the country due to attractive location and prices. Research conducted so far allowed to specify the influence of cultural and administrative as well as industrial and service centers on the size of plots in external patchwork. Research was carried out in 44 villages of Brzozów district located in Podkarpackie voivodship.
